Chinese Five Spice Tilapia
Quick to prepare, great flavor. The fish takes on a caramel color on the outside, and stays flakey white on the inside, which creates a nice appearance.
Sprinkle both sides of tilapia fillets with five spice powder.
Mix together 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.
Stir in scallions and remove from the heat.
Serve the fish drizzled with the pan sauce.
