Baked Fish With Toasted Sesame Seeds

Baked Fish With Toasted Sesame Seeds created by teresas

This recipe works best with a nice, firm white fish, such as red snapper, grouper, or tilapia. Cooking time does not include the 2 hours of marinating time.

Ready In:
30mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 14 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil (I have used 3/4 tsp veg oil and 1/4 tsp sesame oil as well)
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 16 ounces fish fillets, preferably a nice firm white fish, such as red snapper, grouper, cod, tilapia (cut into 4 serving size pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

directions

  • Place the orange juice, brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, and black pepper in a small bowl; stir well to combine.
  • Arrange the fish in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour the orange juice mixture over the fillets. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning once.
  • Remove the fillets from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Set half of the marinade aside.
  • Place fillets on a lightly greased rack in a shallow roasting pan. Broil fillets 6 inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting occasionally with the marinade.
  • Transfer fish to a serving platter. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds (I toast mine in a skillet while the fish is in the oven) over the fillets, and serve with the reserved marinade.

    My fish of choice was tilapia...and I too used some sesame oil...we loved the flavor...the sauce was so tasty that both hubby and I poured it over our rice...the fish didn't need any dipping sauce...this is a keeper and will be kept close by...thanks for posting it...=)

    This was fantastic! I used tilapia, and the marinade added such a wonderful flavor to the fish. I will certainly make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe, breezermom. Made for Zaar Stars tag game.

    Perfect sauce - not too heavy so you could still taste the fish! Made with fresh grouper. I would like to try it with other juices besides orange too. Yum!
