Sweet & Spicy Citrus Tilapia

A quick and easy marinade makes this fish pop for dinner! Also yummy on chicken – marinate longer than this recipe states and then grill it outside! Great bright flavors. Pair with freshly steamed veggies or a cool marinated vegetable salad for a complete meal.


4 (6-oz) tilapia fillets
cooking spray
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (about 1 orange)
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp paprika

1. Arrange fish in a single layer in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Combine orange juice and next 9 ingredients (through garlic); pour over fish. Let stand 15 minutes.
2. Preheat broiler.
3. Sprinkle fish with paprika; broil 15 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Drizzle sauce over fish.
