4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 2 teaspoons sauce)

"This is a very versatile marinade. It's great with chicken breasts, but I would recommend using the grill instead. Add green beans tossed with cilantro and lime." —Carma Van Allen, South Orange, N.J.

How to Make It

Step 1

Arrange fish in a single layer in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Combine orange juice and next 9 ingredients (through garlic); pour over fish. Let stand 15 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat broiler.

Step 3

Sprinkle fish with paprika; broil 15 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Drizzle sauce over fish.

Delicious and easy

Just affirming that this recipe is really good and super simple. I let mine marinate a half hour, then as other suggested, cooked it (3 min per side) in a frying pan with just a tsp. of peanut oil while I reduced the sauce in another pan.  Squeezed a little extra lime over the fish when I flipped them. Served this with some white basmati rice and steamed green beans & red bell peppers.

Quick Question

June 04, 2016
Only put 4 stars simply because it wouldn't let me post a question without putting something.  Actually have this dish marinating right now.  My questions is--do you leave it sitting in the marinade while you broil or remove some of the marinade.  I have a lot of marinade--I guess not enough fish or wrong pan.  Anyway, any suggestions?

Wonderful! Easy and very tasty. I made no changes to the recipe. Even my granddaughter, who at best tolerates eating fish, loved it and ate the whole piece. Will definitely be making this again. The dish is worthy of serving to company.

I rate this 4 instead of 5. This is the base for my marinade for Yucatan Chicken or Fish or Pork. The difference is omit the red pepper and salt and replace with Achoite Paste about 2 teaspoons or a quarter of block. Marinade all meat or fish products for at least 2 hours. The chick (thighs work great) or pork overnight if possible then grill. Every time I make this with a different type of meat my family simply says Yum, is there any leftover. Remember the marinade recipe is for 24 oz or a 1 1/2 lbs of meat or fish adjust the recipe to meet your family needs. Or you can put all ingredients (chicken or pork) in a pot and and cook until done & serve with sauce and white rice.

Easy, quick, and very tasting. Could see the marinade working with a lot of fish. Also had a picky husband who liked this.

That was delicious! It will be added to my regular rotation. I may even try that marinade on chicken on the grill this summer. I used tilapia from Costco so the fillets were generous. The only change I made was using 1/8 tsp. red pepper and I broiled it for 10 minutes. It actually may have been finished a minute or two earlier but it was close to perfect at that amount of time. I thought the sauce was fine. I used one of my biggest dishes because of the size of fillet so they weren't swimming in marinade as mentioned in previous comments. All in all I think it was a great dish!
