Orange Glazed Tilapia - A RECIPE FOR TODAY

Orange Glazed Tilapia
Serves 4 people

Recipe courtesy of Ohio Proud

Ingredients:
1-1/2 pounds tilapia, boneless, skinless, rinsed and patted dry
2 tablespoons butter
1-1/2 onions, peeled and chopped
4 oranges, peeled, sectioned and diced
3 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with water to form a slurry
1-1/2 cups water
1-1/2 cups orange juice
Salt to taste

Directions:
Heat large sauté pan; adding butter and allowing to melt, but not brown.

Add onions, sauteing until tender. Have onions "sweat", but not caramelize.

Add oranges and stir; allowing mixture to cook approximately two minutes.

Slowly add cornstarch slurry (remember to stir it up before using, so as not to cause lumps); allowing to thicken to a paste.

Gradually pour in orange juice to slightly thin paste to a glaze. (You may not need entire amount of orange juice.)

When mixture gets to smooth glaze, remove from heat and spoon equal amounts over each tilapia filet and bake in pre-heated oven for approximately 20 minutes or until tilapia is firm.

ENJOY!
