Five-Spice Tilapia for Two


From EatingWell:  July/August 2010

Chinese five-spice powder, soy sauce and brown sugar make a quick glaze for tilapia in this easy recipe for two.

Makes 2 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes



  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 medium or 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.
