Five-Spice Tilapia


1 pound tilapia fillets
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (see Tip)
¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 scallions, thinly sliced
3 – 4 cloves of Barbismoked™ Chinese Five Spice Smoked Garlic chopped finely


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 chopped garlic and remove from the heat. Serve the fish drizzled with the pan sauce.
