Both my husband and I really enjoyed this recipe because of its spiceness. Tilapia is a rather bland fish, so anything to spice it up is good. It's such a low-calorie fish, so I've been trying to eat it a little more often. Added a bit more red pepper, but other than that followed the recipe. Served with a tossed green salad, corn on the cob and garlic bread. Will be adding this to my regular weekly meal rotation. Fast and easy.

Enjoyed this recipe. I thought the five spice powder might possibly overpower the tilapia but the recipe amounts were right on. A keeper.

this is my go-to meal, I always have the ingredients on hand and serve with steamed broccoli and pilaf. It soaks up the extra sauce and you can't beat it!

This recepie is so delicious!!! I am a beginner cook so I really appreciated how fast and simple this dish was to make. The sauce gave the fish really good flavor and the spices on the fish complimented the fish very well. My husband and I loved it!!! Will definetly do it again! Thanks!!!

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.

Spices are perfect for Tilapia, a very mild fish. Great, easy dinner for everyday or special occasions for fish lovers. We made a little more sauce than the recipe calls for. Went well with couscous.

Changed a lot of things: grapefruit for orange juice and fresh ginger for spiced, and added the sauce to the pan while the fish finished cooking. Wonderful!

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.

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.

Really yummy! It was also really quick and easy to throw together.
