Sesame Tilapia

I'm always on the hunt for quick and easy dinner ideas, that don't break the bank.  This one is originally from Allrecipes.  Tilapia is usually about $3/lb at Costco, and when paired with some minute rice, or even Steamfresh veggies, this can be a tasty dinner for 2 people, for about $4 total.  Not bad!  I like to top the fish with sesame seeds before putting it in the oven.  I also remove the remaining sauce (once the fish is cooked), and reduce it down a bit to create a nice thick sauce for veggies or rice.

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 Tilapia filets
  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.
