How to Make Spicy Orange Tilapia
- Heat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse of your fish with water and place in bowl. Heat up coconut oil and then let it cool down a few minutes. Take a spoon and drizzle over fish on both sides. Use your spoon to push the oil over the fish or you can brush it on.
My fish was so cold still that the coconut oil hardened on top. LOL
- Prepare your spices and orange juice. Get a piece of parchment paper that you can fit the fish in and fold up the side and ends. Pour half of the seasoning over one fillet. Do the same to the second fillet and then place your orange slices on top of the fish and fold up the parchment paper, so the juices don't run out. Place both fillets on baking sheets.
- When fish is done, you are ready to plate. I used two spatulas to lift it carefully off the parchment paper. I then squeezed just a little more fresh orange on top and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
I like serving this with Broccoli and Barley
