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.
- 8 ounces tilapia fillets
- 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (see Tip)
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons light brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- Sprinkle both sides of tilapia fillets with five-spice powder. Combine soy sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl.
- 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.
Tips & Notes
- Five-spice powder is a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. Look for it in the spice section at the market or with other Asian ingredients.
