    I have had a craving for Tilapia lately. This sounds like a refreshing way to make it. The cooking time does not include making the rice.

      oh wow was this good. I totally loved the combination of flavors-the oranges really made it! The instructions do not tell you where to add the oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne so I added it at step # 9 along with the cilantro, oranges, tomatoes and beans. I did not chop the oranges and I added more cilantro and used fresh oregano . I baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Terrific.
