I love the sweet and tangy taste of orange with mild fish in this special recipe for Honey Orange Fish Fillets.

This is a super simple recipe and perfect for Lent because it has a spring-like taste and feel. You can use other seasonings in this recipe, such as basil, thyme, or marjoram in place of the dill weed if you'd like.

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or safflower oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1-1/2 pounds haddock, arctic char, cod, or halibut fillets

How to Make It

1. Combine the orange juice concentrate, oil, honey, dried dill weed, white pepper, salt, and orange zest, and pour over the fish in a glass baking dish. Cover and chill 30 minutes. (You can also make this without marinating the fish; just broil it and brush with the marinade.)

2. Remove the fish from the dish and reserve the marinade. Grill or broil the fish 4-6" from heat source (either over medium coals or under a hot broiler), turning carefully once and brushing with the marinade, until fish is thoroughly cooked and flakes easily when tested with fork, about 5 to 10 minutes.

3. If the fish is less than 1/2" thick, you can broil it without turning, which makes the recipe much easier! Discard any remaining marinade and serve the fish immediately.
