I wanted something citrus tonight. So I ventured out and decided to make an orange glaze for the fish and for the side a strawberry walnut coleslaw. The family gobbled this one up!
Orange rind of one orange
Juice of one orange
1 tbsp of raw honey
1 tsp of red pepper flakes
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp ground arrowroot (for thickness)
1 tbsp olive oil
4-6 tilapia fillets
Salt and pepper to taste
- Put the orange juice, rind, honey, rice vinegar, red pepper and arrowroot in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and whisk then move to low heat and let sit for 3-5 minutes until glaze thickens.
- Add olive oil in a large skillet and add desired salt and pepper to fish and cook until flakey.
- Drizzle glaze over warm fish.
Strawberry Walnut Coleslaw:
About 3-4 cups of chopped red cabbage.
1 1/2 cups of chopped strawberries
1/3 c. finely chopped walnuts
1-2 tbsp coconut vinegar
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 fresh lime juice
Salt to taste
- Add all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and toss.
