Sweet Citrus Tilapia Recipe
Fish has always been a favorite food of mine. I have so many memories of fishing on the lake growing up in Minnesota. Our state is nicknamed "Land of 10,000 Lakes" so where ever you are, there's usually a lake somewhere close by!
When I don't have access to fresh fish, I usually buy tilapia. It's easy to cook and you can prepare it with so many methods and flavors. This recipe turned out fantastic!! I love the slight sweetness from the brown sugar and it pairs well with the citrus flavors. The original recipe called for cayenne, but I skipped that because my daughter isn't very fond of spicy foods. It turned out perfect without it! Enjoy!

salt and pepper, as desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Arrange fish in a single layer in a greased glass baking dish. Combine all ingredients except paprika, and pour over fish fillets. Let stand 15 minutes. Sprinkle paprika over fish fillets.
