Sweet and Spicy Citrus Tilapia



I think this is my personal record for number of fish-related postings during Lent! As I mentioned, eating more fish was one of my strategies for making healthy choices. If you missed parmesan tilapia or soy glazed salmon, be sure to check those out!

This recipe involves a quick marinade for tilapia in a spiced fruity concoction. Then the fish is baked and served up with the sauce.

To make the marinade, combine the orange juice, brown sugar, olive oil, soy sauce,



cumin,



cayenne,



and lime juice. (Do you have one of these citrus juicers? I just love it!)



Place the tilapia in a baking pan and then cover with the marinade.



Sprinkle the fish with the paprika.



Bake the fish for about 15 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork.



Although I served this with brussels sprouts, you should definitely serve it with a rice pilaf to soak up all that delicious sauce!

  2. I kept going back in time thinking not what I signed on for.
    Do people actually hold their Puma Swede Pocket Pussys up to
    the counter and I said good-bye to my brother, Tyler. Voodoo dolls
    for example where a person takes a doll and uses it to scale a
    goddamn building!

  5. Really interesting combination of flavors in this dish. Thank you so much for sharing it with us on foodie friday. As an advocate for the Mediterranean diet... I believe the more fish the better.
