Citrus Baked Fish Recipe

Citrus Baked Fish Recipe

This recipe allows me to combine two things abundant in Florida—fresh fish and orange juice. The orange juice gives the fish a wonderful, tangy flavor.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Bake: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 4 red snapper or tilapia fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 orange slices, halved
  • Paprika


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the orange juice concentrate, oil and dill; add fish. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Place the fillets in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Cover and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • 3. Dip cut edges of orange slices in paprika; serve with fish. Yield: 4 servings.
