I do not always post the healthy dinners I serve because sometimes they are just downright boring. I have been collecting the Cooking Light Annual Cookbooks for more than a decade. They provide much inspiration for healthier cooking. This recipe came straight from the May 2006 magazine.
Five-Spice Tilapia with Citrus Ponzu Sauce
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 tablespoon sauce)
2 Tbsp thinly sliced green onions
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
1/4 tsp bottled ground fresh ginger
1/2 tsp five-spice powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
2 tsp canola oil
Combine green onions, juices, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and ginger in a small bowl.
Combine five-spice powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle both sides of fish evenly with spice mixture.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet,
and serve with sauce.
