I love tilapia! This is a Cooking Light recipe. I have not yet made this, but it looks to be a relatively quick and easy meal.

This was delicious! I had all the ingredients except the green onions but I'm not a big fan of them anyway. I used coconut oil instead of canola oil as I prefer it; it doesn't change the taste much, especially in small quantities like this. I forgot to take a photo of my dinner plate so I just have a photo of the unadorned fish. I'll post a better photo next time since there definitely WILL be a next time. Hubby even suggested saving the leftover sauce and just making it again this week.

I had some fillet of sole and made this recipe. I loved the combination of Asian inspired ingredients, and it was awesome! Just the right amount of sweet and savory. Can't wait to make it again using swordfish!
