Tilapia with Orange Glaze

Our office moved last Saturday...not the way I wanted to spend one of my weekend days, but it's over.  I am actually pretty settled into the new space that feels pretty good.  But let me tell you, I am one exhausted chick.  Yesterday, I even had to actually sit down at a desk and do my actual job.  Yea, I know, weird, but true!!  Seriously, the week before we moved, I don't think I did any actual accounting work.  Now it's back to the grind and hopefully a more normal paced life!!

But enough of me, let's talk about orange glazed tilapia, shall we?

I love orange chicken... I love orange beef...I had an orange in the refrigerator that needed to be used....I now love tilapia with orange glaze!  To be honest with you, I really want to make orange chicken, now, using this sauce.  I was surprised at how wonderful it turned out!  Nice and tangy and fresh.  It was perfect!

Tilapia with Orange Glaze
Printable Recipe 
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 cup orange juice (about 2 oranges)
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons honey
1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
4 Tilapia fillets

Mix together all ingredients except the fish.  Pour half into a small saucepan and set aside.  Place the fillets in a resealable bag or a shallow baking dish and pour the remainder or the marinade over them.  Let marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.  Remove fillets from bag and discard marinade.

Place the small saucepan with the remaining sauce over medium low heat and simmer until it has thickened.

In a non-stick skillet sprayed with just a bit of non-stick spray, add the fillets.  Cook, covered, for 4 minutes per side or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Drizzle the sauce over top of the fish and enjoy!

Love the marinade Jenn, it sounds delicious. I have tilapia in my freezer and now I have a recipe to try! Thank you!

Yet another delicious sounding recipe! But Jenn, where's the red pepper flakes? LOL :) Seriously this sounds really good, easy and a family pleaser. The little Witch loves orange chicken so I know this would be a hit here too. Coming soon: The Kitchen Witch stops creating her own recipes and just cooks whatever Jenn posts :)

I read this recipe and kinda agreed with Andrea! :-) I love all the flavor you bring to meat, fish, and poultry via good things I can eat. This sounds amazing! (though I will substitute Bragg's Liquid Aminos for the soy sauce.)
