Tilapia is a small fish that originated in Africa, but is now cultivated in many parts of the world. Tilapia can grow to about 18 inches long and 4 lbs. and is available at the fish counter in most grocery stores. Tilapia meat is white and mild-tasting and works well with citrus-based sauces like lemon or orange. Tilapia with orange juice and butter sauce is a good choice for light lunch or dinner.
Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a skillet on a medium-high burner.
Add tilapia fillets to the skillet and let them sauté for about four minutes per side, turning once.
Remove the tilapia fillets from the pan once they’re cooked and set them aside.
Add 1 cup of orange juice and 2 tbsp. of butter to the pan. Bring it up to the boil and let it simmer until the sauce has thickened, stirring often.
Pour the orange juice butter sauce over the tilapia fillets and serve.
