Spice Asian Tilapia


  • 1 pound tilapia fillets

  • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Season both sides of Tilapia with five-spice powder. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce and brown sugar.

  2. On medium to high heat, heat oil on a large non-stick skillet and cook Tilapia fillets until the outer edges are a solid color. This should take about two minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and flip the fillets over.

  3. Add the soy sauce mixture and bring it to a boil.

  4. Once the sauce has thickened and the fish is cooked through, add scallions and remove from the heat.

  5. Serve the fish drizzled with the pan sauce.
