Sweet and Spicy Citrus Tilapia

 final fish
I cut this recipe out of a magazine and new I had to try it. My family loves fish and we are always looking for different ways to cook it so that it doesn’t have an overpowering fishy taste ~ if that makes any sense at all!
At the end I will type out the entire recipe for you so that you can try it for yourself. It is really easy to prepare and make.
Aha! This time I remembered to take a photo of the ingredients, so go gather all of these things:
 Fish ingredients
Some how the fish swam away from the photo but you will need 4-6 (6oz) of tilapia!
 fish mixture
You will combine the first 10 ingredients from the recipe into a bowl and mix it really well.
 marinate fish
Next you will pour the liquid mixture over the fish and let it marinate for 15 minutes while your broiler heats up. Yes, your broiler.
 baked potatoes
Before I left for work that morning, I threw these in the crock pot. This is seriously the easiest way I’ve found to make a perfect baked potato every single time.
yum asparagus
Also get some asparagus going or whatever other type of veggie floats your boat.
I told you I’m having a wonderful loving relationship with asparagus right now!
Once your broiler is ready, pop the fish in and let it cook for about 15 minutes.
When it comes out drizzle the reaming sauce on top of the fish and serve.
Here is the complete recipe:
