Citrus Tilapia

This is a good marinade for tilapia that appeared in this past month's Cooking Light. I was afraid it would be sweet, but somehow once it's roasted, it isn't.

4 6 ounce tilapia filets
1/2 cup orange juice (about one orange)
3 Tblsp lime juice
1 Tblsp brown sugar
1 Tblsp olive oil
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced or crushed
1/2 tsp. paprika.

Combine all marinade ingredients up to garlic cloves. Place fish in shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Poour marinade over fish. Let rest no longer than 15 minutes (or you'll have ceviche).

Preheat boriler. Sprinkle fish with paprika, broil 15 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Drizzle sauce over fish. Makes four servings.
