Eating Healthy - Five Spice Tilapia

Notice: Use of undefined constant content - assumed 'content' in /home/northwoo/public_html/kkbj.com/recipes.php on line 34

    1 pound tilapia fillets
    1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
    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.
