Five-Spice Tilapia

Five-Spice Tilapia
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

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 don’t have one large enough, use 2 smaller skillets instead or cook them in two separate batches, using more oil as necessary.

Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes
  • 1 pound
    tilapia fillets
  • 1 teaspoon
    Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/4 cup
    reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons
    light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon
    canola oil
  • scallions, thinly sliced
Instructions
  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.
