Tilapia with Gingered Orange Sauce

***I'm always looking for fast and simple ways to prepare tilapia. It's such a versatile fish, and there are so many flavor combinations that are great when paired with it. I almost always have some stored in the freezer for busy weeknights when I need a fast meal.

A few nights ago, I had some tilapia thawing and I needed a quick recipe. I turned over the package of fish, looked on the back, and found this recipe. I had everything that I needed on-hand already, which made it even easier! I did substitute the ginger root with some ground ginger from my spice rack. I also had to use orange juice concentrate in the sauce. It came out pretty tasty!

Bon Appetit!**

4 Tilapia fillets, thawed
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 Tbsp. ginger root, unpeeled, freshly grated (I substituted with ground ginger)
2 tsp. honey
2 tsp. Dijon mustard

Combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-high. Boil until reduced to 1/2 to 3/4 cup, approximately 4 to 5 minutes.

Coat both sides of fillets with sauce. Arrange tilapia in one layer in ovenproof dish. Bake fillets at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (or until fillets begin to flake). Remove fillets to platter and top with remaining sauce.

Serves 4.
