Five-Spice Tilapia This was good but I felt the sauce overpowered the fish completely. Tilapia has a delicate flavor better suited to a lighter sauce of butter and a touch of garlic lemon s & p. I have used a similar sauce (using honey not brown sugar) on salmon and tuna; it seemed better suited to these types of fillets. Great recipe for someone who doesn't like the taste of fish. Pros: quick easy Cons: sauce overpowers fish
This recipe is totally tasty!! My husband who is not fond of fish raved about how delicious it is!! I mixed the spices in equal amounts in a tsp and it came out wonderful!! Opal Cons: Combined spices not usually at hand.
A nice change of pace from my usual fish entrees! My family enjoyed this fish dish! It was a nice change from the regular fish recipes in my rotation. And I was happy to put the Five Spice powder in my pantry to good use! I seem to forget it's there sometimes which is a shame because it's absolutely divine! I doubled the recipe and used Splenda brown sugar blend (but only about 2.5 Tbsp) instead of the regular brown sugar. I left the scallion garnish off too as I'm not that fond of them. I wouldn't want to eat this every night because of the sugar but it's definitely good enough to make again. Pros: Fast and easy to prepare.
This was SO good! The five-spice and the glaze complement each other really well. I made it for supper tonight with the roasted corn and shitakes also from this issue. My husband has been talking about it all evening. Even my 4-year-old and 1-year-old aet it up. And it was incredibly quick and simple.
Soy sauce overpowering This dish didn't work for me because the taste of soy sauce/brown sugar mixture was too strong. Couldn't taste the fish..or even the five spice powder. Pros: This dish was very easy to prepare and the fish was perfectly cooked. Cons: The soy sauce mixture did not thicken and the taste overpowered the fish.
