Sweet and Spicy Citrus Tilapia

Unfortunately, I don't often cook fish a lot.  If I'm going to make it, I have to buy it the day of, and somehow it's never on the menu the day I'm shopping.  I've decided that we needed to eat more fish though, especially since the kids like it and it's healthy!   I omitted the red pepper to make it kid-friendly.  Unfortunately, this recipe was disappointing.  I don't know if marinating it more would have helped.  It was just kind of bland.  This has not deterred me though from cooking more fish!
