Good fish recipes

In an effort to eat healthier, I've been trying to incorporate one serving of fish into our meals each week. Plus, fish tend to be easy and fast to cook. I have found a couple of really tasty recipes that I thought you guys would enjoy! 

The one you see pictured above is for an Orange Salmon. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law. It is very easy and yummy!

Orange Salmon Grill
1/3 cup honey
2T olive oil
1/2 cup orange juice
1T orange zest
1.5 T lemon juice
2T red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
2 garlic cloves (crushed...I use minced)
1T mustard
1/4 tsp salt

Heat broiler on low. Sprinkle salmon with salt, pepper, and 11 crushed fennel seeds (optional fennel seeds). Bring glaze ingredients to a boil in small sauce pan and simmer 7 minutes. Baste salmon with glaze. Cook for 5-10 minutes until done, basting salmon throughout cooking time. 

Another recipe we have really enjoyed is the following tilapia recipe. Tilapia is a white fish with a very light flavor. We often find it frozen in individual packets in our freezer section of the grocery store. The following recipe is courtesy of my sister-in-law.

Zesty Tilapia Fillets
4 tilapia fillets
olive oil cooking spray
1.5 tsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
dash of tabasco (optional)

Spray broiling pan with olive oil. Combine remaining ingredients and spoon over fish. Should be a paste-like texture. Broil about 4 inches from heat for 5-10 minutes depending on thickness of fish, until it flakes easily with a fork

Anyone else have any good fish recipes? Let me know if you try these and how you like them too!

mmm, we love fish. that talapia is good-i've done it before. tonight we actually did fish tacos. i took mahi mahi and dipped it in olive oil to coat then coated it with a mixture of 1T Lawry's Season Salt and 2t chili powder. cook it in a pan (you can add butter or spray...i don't like to fry in olive oil since it negates the benefits if you heat it too much) and then we shredded it up into corn tortillas and added cheese, lettuce, black beans, corn and light sour cream.

we also like to cook salmon in malibu rum. its so good! make a pan out of foil for the grill so the fish can kinda poach in the alcohol and add some olive oil and garlic and s&p-whatever you think would be yummy.

I used your recipe the other night and it was a huge hit!!! Wasn't hard to make either...did the salmon with homemade mashed potatoes and peas and the kids ate EVERYTHING but of course they always do. Well, thanks again this is definately going in my recipe folder!
