Citrus Marinated Tilapia

I marinated tilapia in a citrus dill marinade which gave a nice flavor to the baked fish.  As prepared, this recipe yields 4 servings at approximately 250 calories per serving.  As prepared this fish would be a compliment served with steamed rice and fresh vegetables.  Enjoy!

Citrus Marinated Tilapia

3/4 cup orange juice concentrate
3 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon olive oil
zest of 1 orange
1/2 teaspoon clove garlic
1 Tablespoon fresh dill
4 fillets of tilapia

Combine the orange juice concentrate, honey, and olive oil in a bowl.  Chop the fresh dill using fine slices.

Mix the dill, orange zest and garlic into the liquid marinade.

Place the fish in a ziploc bag and cover with the citrus marinade.  Carefully seal the bag to remove as much air as possible.  Keep in the refrigerator for about a half hour.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a cooking pan with non stick cooking spray.  Add the fish with the citrus marinade.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.  Serve immediately.  Serves 4 at approximately 250 calories per serving.
