Orange Honey Tilapia

I recently bought some really good Navel oranges at the supermarket and I needed a new way to make tilapia, so I thought why not put the two together? The freshly squeezed orange juice and honey offer a subtle flavor to the fish, not overpowering at all.



Orange Honey Tilapia
Serves 2

2 medium oranges
2 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. rice-wine vinegar
2 tilapia fillets (about 4 ounces each)

Cut one orange in half and squeeze into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the honey, Worcestershire sauce and rice-wine vinegar into the bag. Place the tilapia fillets into the bag. Cut the remaining orange into slices. Add to the bag. Seal bag and turn several times to coat the tilapia. Place in the refrigerator and let marinate for about 4 hours.

Preheat broiler. Place two large pieces of aluminum foil on a flat surface. Spray each with nonstick cooking spray. Remove the tilapia from the resealable bag and place one on each foil piece. Place 2 orange slices on each piece. Spoon some of the marinade over the fish. Fold foil edges over fish and seal tightly. Place under broiler and cook for about 20 minutes. Open foil partway, being careful to keep the juices in, and continue cooking until tilapia is opaque and flakes easily, about 15 minutes longer.

(Each serving is 4 pts.)
