This dish is a favorite with my family. The sesame flavor is enhanced with orange and ginger. Great served with rice and broccoli.

Directions

  1. Stir the orange juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, garlic, and ginger in a 9x13 inch baking dish until combined. Add the tilapia fillets, turning once to evenly coat. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Remove the plastic wrap, and bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 9 to 11 minutes.

Wow, this tasted even better than expected. I added toasted sesame seeds and sliced scallions on top of the fish to serve. Also, I stirred in about 1 tbsp cornstarch to the marinade after I took the tilapia out of the oven (for 3 servings).

The original version of this recipe is worthy of 4 stars, but by adding toasted sesame seeds and some Thai red chili paste it easily becomes a 5 star recipe.

Such an easy and flavorful recipe. I didn't have orange juice and substituted with apple juice. I also used fresh ginger (grated and squeezed the juices out)and it tasted awesome. I intend to make this many more times and try different types of fish. Thank you for a delicious and healthy recipe.
