Five-Spice Tilapia

Five-Spice Tilapia

Chinese five-spice powder, soy sauce and brown sugar make a quick glaze for tilapia. You'll need a skillet that is 12 inches or larger to accommodate the pound of tilapia fillets. If you dont have one large enough, use 2 smaller skillets instead or cook them in two separate batches, using more oil as necessary.

  • Yield: 4 servings ( Serving Size: servings )
  • Cook time:0 Minute
  • Prep time:0 Minute

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon(s) canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Chinese five-spice powder
  • 3 tablespoon(s) light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound(s) tilapia fillets

Preparation

1. Sprinkle both sides of tilapia fillets with five-spice powder. Combine soy sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tilapia and cook until the outer edges are opaque, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, turn the fish over, stir the soy mixture and pour into the pan. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook until the fish is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes more. Add scallions and remove from the heat. Serve the fish drizzled with the pan sauce.
