Pan Seared 5-Spice Tilapia with Hot Orange Ginger Sauce

This recipe looks like a lot of ingredients, but it's really simple to put together & a quick meal to prepare. I believe I got this recipe from a Cuisine magazine.   It's slightly spicy, but not overly. 


1/2 t. Chinese 5-spice
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
3 T. oil, divided
4-6 tilapia
2 T. minced scallions

Mix all the spices together with 2 T. oil

Pat tilapia dry; brush with the spice mix

Heat 1 T. oil in a large non-stick skillet until lightly smoking.

Add tilapia & saute' 3 minutes on each side.  Sprinkle with scallions.

Hot Orange-Ginger Sauce

1/4 c. orange marmalade
1/4 cup orange juice
2 T. rice vinegar
1 T. minced ginger root
1/2 t. red pepper flakes
1 t. minced garlic
1 T. oil

Whisk first 5 ingredients together. 

Saute' garlic in oil for 30 sec in a small saucepan.  Add marmalade mixture & simmer, stirring constantly for 5 minutes.

Pour over the tilapia & serve.
