Sweet and Spicy Citrus Tilapia

If your family isn’t a fan of fish, use this same marinade on chicken (grill instead of broiling).  For a side dish, toss steamed green beans with lime juice and cilantro.  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice (about 1 orange)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

What you’ll do:

  • Spray a roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Arrange the fish in a single layer in roasting pan.
  • Combine the orange juice, lime juice, brown sugar, olive oil, soy sauce, salt, cumin, pepper, red pepper and garlic.
  • Pour over the fish.
  • Let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven broiler.
  • Sprinkle fish with paprika.
  • Broil 15 minutes or until it reaches desired doneness.
  • Drizzle the sauce over the fish.
