This is a simple fish recipe, and the rice will make a great side dish on its own for many different recipes.
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. black pepper
8 small to medium sized tilapia fillets
1 tbsp. peanut oil
2 tsp coconut oil
3/4 cup of steamed veggies (cut into small bits if necessary)
1/4 cup yellow or red peppers, julienne
3 chopped scallions
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp Chinese 5-spice
2 cups brown rice, cooked
INSERT TEXT HEREInstructions:
Mix the soy sauce, garlic, ginger and pepper bowl. Add the tilapia, cover with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to marinate.
Put a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the coconut oil and the peppers. Cook them for about 3 minutes.
Add the veggies-- you can use any kind. Try some diced, steamed broccoli, peas, chopped spinach or kale. Throw them in and cook for an additional 2 or 3 minutes.
Add the scallions, salt and 5-spice and mix well. Add the rice and stir until the ingredients are mixed and the rice is heated through.
When the fish finishes marinating, put out a large, heavy nonstick pan on medium-high heat and let it heat up.
Add the peanut oil to coat the pan, then add the fish. Cook the fish for a couple of minutes on each side, until it becomes flaky and opaque.
Serve the fish with rice. Serves four.
