Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner Ingredients

Prepare the Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner with the following ingredients and my most used kitchen tools:

  • Tilapia Filets. Get frozen tilapia filets and thaw them out before you prepare them for the oven. I also have a Lemon Garlic Tilapia with Zucchini and Squash Dinner that your family will enjoy!
  • Orange Juice. Use orange juice as a marinade for the tilapia to give it that sweet taste.
  • Panko Bread Crumbs. You can add breadcrumbs to the tilapia to give it a crisp coating.
  • Melted Butter. Mix the breadcrumbs with the melted butter to create the crust for your fish.
  • Asparagus. Trim your asparagus before adding it to your sheet with the tilapia. You might also like my Cheesy Asparagus!
  • Red Onions. Slice your red onions into thin pieces and place alongside the tilapia and asparagus.

There are a few other ingredients to use when preparing this meal, including salt, pepper, minced garlic, minced fresh basil, and olive oil. Don’t forget to add this delicious recipe to your weekly meal plan!

What to Add to Your Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner

The Large Family Style Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe is a simple one that consists of only a few ingredients, including tilapia, asparagus, and onions. However, you can add more to it and eat it with additional meal side dishes if you would like. For example, you might want to include small golden potatoes or red potatoes on the baking sheet next to your fish, onions, and asparagus.

If you do not like asparagus, replace it with broccoli or cauliflower. You can serve your tilapia and veggies over brown rice, cauliflower rice, or your favorite pasta noodles. It will also taste great with a side salad and a citrus vinaigrette. 

What to Make with Your Large Family Style Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner

I have lots of great ideas for you to add to your meal to stretch it into a really big large family dinner. You can add a delicious soup to start with like my Stuffed Pepper Stew. The nice thing about adding a delicious soup is that you can make a large batch and eat it for days to stretch your meals. Cook once, eat for days! You might also try adding sweet bread that will double as a delicious side or kid-friendly snack. A few kid-favorite bread and muffins to try are Tuti-Fruit Pancake Muffins, Double Chocolate Banana Bread, or Mixed Berry Muffins.

Large Family Style Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe

  • Author: Jamerrill Stewart
  • Prep Time: 15 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 Minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 Servings
  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Oven


Create a sweet citrus-like seafood meal with this Large Family Style Orange Tilapia Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe. The fish and veggie dish is naturally good, easy to put together, and tasty!



  • 12 frozen tilapia filets, thawed
  • 4 ½ cups orange juice, for marinating
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


For the topping:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 ¼ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ¾ cup orange juice 
  • 6 cloves garlic, minces
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh basil


For the vegetables:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper, as desired
  • 2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 red onions, sliced



  1. Pour the 4 ½ cups orange juice into a resealable plastic bag.  Add the tilapia filets, squeeze the bag removing all excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate the fish in the refrigerator 3 hours to overnight. 

  2. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare two large rimmed baking sheets by lining with aluminum foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, cut together the butter, panko, and basil. Stir in the orange juice and garlic. 

  4. Remove the tilapia from the orange juice, discarding the marinade, and pat with paper toweling to remove excess liquid. Salt and pepper on both sides as desired. 

  5. Arrange the filets on the sheet pans, leaving space between for the vegetables with the asparagus and sliced red onions.

  6. Spread the butter mixture over the top of each filet to cover each completely.

  7. Toss the asparagus in olive oil and season with salt and pepper as desired.

  8. Around the fish, add the asparagus and onions.

  9. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. To give the topping a crunch, turn on the broiler over the fish for about 3 to 5 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning.


*This recipe requires a 3 hour marinade time to taste the best. Be sure to account for that when planning your meal. You can also marinate it overnight if that is easier.
