One serving of this delicious five-spice tilapia provides almost all five ounces of protein recommended for those on an 1,800-calorie meal plan. Drizzle on the citrus ponzu sauce to add more flavor to the fish and give the dinner a little asian flair.
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
2 teaspoons canola oil
How to Make It
Combine green onions, juices, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and ginger in a small bowl.
Combine five-spice powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle both sides of fish evenly with spice mixture.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet, and serve with sauce.

Really enjoyed this with sushi rice, edamame, and a salad of daikon, carrot, and cucumber with ginger-sesame dressing. I made 1/2 the fish (only two people) but all the seasoning mixture and all the sauce.
We have made this many times. Use fresh ginger - this sauce is much better than any ponzu you could buy. I have found that I need to double CL sauces. The Chinese Five spice gives this bland fish great flavor - but if you're not sure of the taste - go a little light the first time you make it. Good with a Resiling or Sauv Blanc.
This was good, I'd have to say the sauce is what made the dish, it was lick the plate good. I used 4 3oz Tilapia fillets for two of us but kept the seasoning and sauce amount the same. I served with roasted aspargus which went well with the sauce also.
This was horrible! The ponzu sauce is tasty, but the five spice on the fish was horrible. I took a couple of bites and then threw it in the trash. Now I have a jar of five spice that will never be used again.
