Maple Orange-Glazed Panfish
by Wayne Phillips
Marinating panfish fillets in a mixture of orange juice and maple syrup gives you a succulent, flavorpacked meal.
Ingredients for four servings
Boneless panfish fillets
Salt and black pepper

Marinating liquid
One-half cup orange juice
One-third cup maple syrup
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 Tbsp. soy sauce

Mix marinating ingredients together in a baking dish. Season fillets on both sides with salt and pepper before placing in mixture and marinating for 2 to 3 hours. Bake in a 400-degree oven until fillets are opaque. This should take about 10 minutes per inch of fillet thickness. Baste the cooked fillets with marinating
liquid before serving.

Roasted vegetables like potatoes, squash, beets, carrots and parsnips are excellent with the fish. Try to use root vegetables that have a milder flavor instead of stronger-flavored ones like rutabagas.

Spooning the marinating liquid over the fillets before serving increases their flavor and adds an extra touch of moisture to the finished dish.
