    This is an easy to make, nicely balanced sweet sauce with a delicate orange flavor. My only modification: instead of coating with the cracker crumbs and sauteeing, I marinated the tilapia in a baking dish for an hour and baked it in the sauce until flaky (about 15 minutes at 450°). This is a keeper!
