Roasted Tiplapia with Orange-Parsley Salsa

22 Mar

Another fish recipe – I have been going crazy with the seafood lately! This is a recipe I personally did not try – it looked like it would have too much of a fish taste. However, Jason reassured me it was quite good. This is probably one of the easiest recipes -if you can call it that- I have ever made. You roast the tilapia, open a can of mandarin oranges, rip up some parsley, and you’re done!

Roasted Tilapia with Orange-Parsley Salsa
From Cooking Light Magainze, March 2009

  • 3 oranges (fresh) or 1 can mandarin oranges
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 4 (6 ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Spray a corning wear dish with cooking spray. Place fish in the dish and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Drizzle with a tsp of oil. 
  3. Bake fish at 400F for 14 minutes, or until fish flakes easily. If possible, check to make sure the temperature reads at lest 145F.
  4. If using fresh oranges, grate 3 tsp orange rind. Peel and section oranges over a bowl, reserving about 2 tbsp juice. Chop sections. Combine rind, oranges, parsley, 5 tsp oil, and 1/4 tsp salt into a bowl and set aside.
  5. Combine 2 tbsp reserved juice, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp salt, and 2 tbsp parsley with brown rice and mix well.
  6. Serve fish with salsa on top and rice on the side.
