Skillet Apricot Glazed Tilapia – Dairy Free, Gluten Free

SkilletGlazedApricotTilapiaI was following eMeals‘ Paleo plan, but since my food choices are so limited, I couldn’t make many of the recipes.  I decided to switch to the gluten free menu plan, and I haven’t been disappointed.  This weekend I made the Skillet Apricot Glazed Tilapia, and it was a big hit with my husband and kids.  Best of all, it was so easy to make!

Skillet Apricot Glazed Tilapia

1.5 pounds tilapia fillets, thawed and patted dry
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. canola oil, divided
2 TBSP rice vinegar
2 TBSP gluten free soy sauce
1 TBSP honey
1/2 cup apricot fruit spread


-Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper.

-Heat 1 tsp. oil over medium high heat

-Cook half of fish 3 to 4 minutes on each side until it flakes easily with a fork.  Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining fish and oil.

-Combine vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and fruit spread; add to skillet.

-Cook sauce for 2 minutes until it forms a glaze.  Spoon over fish.


We served this with green beans and white rice.
