Sweet and Spicy Citrus Tilapia

12 Sep

I wanted to make tilapia for dinner, so I searched the web for one. I came across this sweet and spicy citrus recipe on  my recipes. I made it tonight for dinner and it was so awesome. I had all the ingredients on hand and it took no time at all to prepare. I served it with some brown rice. It was a delicious, satisfying, and quick meal!

  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons 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 black pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (depends how spicy you want it)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika


  1. Arrange the 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 the fish with paprika; broil for 15 minutes. Drizzle sauce over fish.
