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.

"We like fish BUT not the fishy taste and smell, so citrus and dill worked perfectly. Also, my daughter is gluten intolerant so finding ways to bake fish and chicken without gluten are a must. This recipe was PERFECT for all of us."
