Orange Tilapia

The fish we get in Oklahoma is very fishy. I sprinkled this with lemon juice before adding the orange juice and it did take some of the fishy taste out. I recently heard that Tilapia is not the best fish to eat. Something about the amino acids or something. I think this would work just as well on Cod.
