Description

Asian style glazed Tilapia.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Tilapia Fillets
  • 1-½ teaspoon Freshly Grated Ginger
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter

Preparation

Whisk ginger, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and lime juice together in a bowl.

Marinade the Tilapia fillets for 10 to 15 minutes.

Melt butter in large flat bottomed skillet until it begins to brown (BUT BEFORE IT BEGINS TO BURN!)

Add fish to hot skillet. Cook until done, but not overdone. I find Tilapia to be pretty forgiving. Just cook until it easily flakes off with a fork. A few minutes (2 to3) on each side.

Remove fish from the pan and deglaze pan with remaining marinade. Add a little more soy sauce if there’s not enough.

Pour sauce over fish, serve immediately.

recipe instructions a little vague as it says to deglaze pan with “remaining” marinade. are you suppose to reserve some? It does not state so? Or are you just suppose to deglaze pan and make sauce with marinade that the fish sat in for the 10-15 minutes?

I made this for lunch and I don’t know what I did wrong? It was a bit salty for my taste..maybe next time I won’t use all of the soy sauce mentioned.

This is a new favorite at our house! Even my son who normally hates any fish that isn’t breaded and fried loved it.
I used Bragg’s Liquid Aminos in place of soy sauce.

Hi Fitz!
I just made this again tonight and tried to figure out why yours turned out too salty. My only thought is that maybe it marinated too long? The sauce by itself is pretty salty with the soy sauce.

Good luck next time!

I really like this. Husband thought it was too gingery and kids aren’t big on fish. But everyone did in fact eat it. So I’m calling it a winner.

Very tasty! I ended up adding a little extra soy sauce (unnecessarily on my end) which made the sauce pretty salty. Next time I would probably add a little water to help stretch the sauce. The fish itself was REALLY good. I used cod and the cook time was the same. Next time I’ll try throwing some stir fry veggies in the sauce. Yum!!

This has to be one of the best non fried fish recipes I have ever used. My husband ate it with no complaints, which doesn’t happen often. I don’t think I will be cooking the tilapia any other way! It was so good.

This was so good…my 5 year old asked for seconds! Also, through green beans in the pan with the extra sauce instead of serving it on the fish. DELICIOUS!
