Try with Sesame Oil

I made this recipe but didn't use nearly as much 5 spice as suggested. I just lightly sprinkled each side and the flavor was great. I would also recommend using sesame oil instead, it enhances the flavor, and is a traditional Asian cooking oil.

Easy, tasty

Too much Five-Spice

While this recipe is easy, quick, and low-calorie, it calls for too much five-spice. I recommend using about half as much as the recipe suggests.

Easy, few ingedients, quick prep, low calorie

Great recipe!

I used Swai instead of Tilapia and it tasted amazing! I might try using some ginger next time.

Quick, easy, cheap, healthy

Tilapia Perfected

We tried this recipe after my husband's heart bypass. He didn't like fish and had never tried Tilapia. He loved the recipe and asks me to make it all the time. After trying this he says he loves fish!

Simple, quick, and tasty

Wonderful

My husband (does not like fish) loved it. It reminded him of the Chinese grocery store where we pick up a great hot lunch. We'll try it again - marinating pork, possible chicken and then grilling.

Easy and fast

We tried the 5 spice on other things after making this recipe. It is great on pork loin roast.
