Tilapia with Orange Sauce


Citrus flavors go well with fish, that's what I was thinking when I searched up this recipe.  And it's a Cooking Light recipe, so how can it be bad for you?  There is a nice combination of flavors with the layers of citrus, balanced by salty tamari and a touch of sweetness.  Serve it with green beans and brown rice for an easy weeknight dinner.


Tilapia with Orange Sauce
Recipe from Cooking Light
Serves 4

4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
Cooking spray
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (about 1 orange)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons tamari sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Arrange fish in a single layer in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Combine orange juice, lime juice, maple syrup, olive oil, tamari, salt, cumin, peppers, and garlic. Pour over fish. Let stand 15 minutes.

In the meantime preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Sprinkle fish with paprika; bake 12-15 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Spoon sauce over fish and serve.
