Talapia with Orange Sauce

Ok, so Nick and I had this the other night and it was actually way tastier than I expected it to be. I got the idea from a cookbook but changed the ingredients up a bit to make it my own.

2 T melted butter
1 orange zested and juiced
1/4 t ground ginger
1/2 t white pepper
1 t salt
1 T flour
1/2 c milk
cayenne pepper for garnish

2 4 oz talapia fillets

stir together the first 5 ingredients.
Brush a little over the talapia fillets
broil talapia for approx 10 mins until cooked through
while cooking in a small sauce pan heat the first 5 ingredients
once boiling, add flour and whisk together
add milk whisk until thickened, if too thick, add more milk to thin out

pour over talapia
serve with rice or couscous and a veggie of your choice (we used broccoli but snap peas or something else would work too)
sprinkle just a tiny bit of cayenne pepper on top for color and a little kick! don’t forget it, it really makes all the difference in the world… makes the dish not too sweet

Serves 2 – Calories – Approx 270 each (does not include side dishes, just main dish and sauce)
