    cooking 8

    INGREDIENTS

    8 ounce tilapia fillets
    1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (see Tip)
    2 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
    1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoon light brown sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
    2 scallion, thinly sliced

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Sprinkle both sides of tilapia fillets with five-spice powder. Combine soy sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl.

    2. Heat oil in a medium or 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.

    Tip: Five-spice powder is a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. Look for it in the spice section at the market or with other Asian ingredients.
