5-Spice Tilapia (Entree)

Number of Servings 4



    • 1 pound tilapia fillets
    • 1 tsp. five-spice powder (find in Asian section)
    • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 3 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 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.
