Ready Time

3 hrs 30 mins


5 servings


  • Tilapia fillets: 10
  • Orange juice: 3 cups
  • Butter, softened: 12 tablespoons
  • Panko bread crumbs: 1 1/2 cups
  • Orange juice: 1/2 cup
  • Garlic, minced: 6 cloves
  • Fresh basil, minced: 3 tablespoons
  • Orange juice: 1 cup


Begin by preparing the tilapia marinade.

Combine 1 1/2 cups of orange juice in a resealable plastic bag.

Add the tilapia fillets and ensure they are evenly coated in the marinade.

Seal the bag, removing excess air before refrigerating for 3 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to infuse.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).

While the oven heats, create the flavorful topping by whisking softened butter, panko bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons of orange juice, minced garlic, and fresh basil in a bowl until well blended.

Once the tilapia has marinated, remove the fillets from the marinade, gently shaking off any excess liquid.

Arrange the fillets in a 13×9-inch baking dish, discarding the used marinade.

Pour 1/2 cup of orange juice over the fillets.

Spread the prepared topping evenly over the tilapia fillets, ensuring each piece is completely covered.

The topping will provide a crispy and flavorful crust.

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes.

Keep an eye on the fillets, and when the liquid begins bubbling and the fish flakes easily with a fork, it’s time to remove them from the oven.

Serve immediately and enjoy the delectable combination of tender tilapia with a zesty orange and herb flavor profile.
