Five-Spice Tilapia

The Chinese five-spice glaze in this tilapia recipe is not only easy, but five-star worthy

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.


Yield: 4 servings
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound tilapia fillets
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced

Directions:


Sprinkle both sides of tilapia fillets with five-spice powder. Combine soy sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl.

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.
