Broiled Tilapia

I was looking for something different to do with Tilapia and I came across this recipe on All Recipes. I didn't necessarily want the taco part of it, just the fish. So here's what I did:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. distilled white vinegar
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. lime zest
1 1/2 tsp. honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. seafood season, such as Old Bay
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. hot pepper sauce, or to taste
2-4 fillets tilapia

To make marinade, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, lime zest, honey, garlic, cumin, chili powder, seafood seasoning, black pepper, and hot sauce in a bowl until blended. Place the tilapia in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over the fish. Cover and refrigerate anywhere from 2-8 hours.

To cook, set broiler to high (if you have this setting), place fillets on broiler pan, and place broiler pan in oven about 4 inches from broiler. Let cook 5 minutes on one side. Flip fillets over, spoon more of the marinade over the fish, place back in oven and let cook another 4-5 minutes, or until flaky.
