Asian-Spiced Tilapia with Stir-Fry Veggies

Admittedly, the stir-fry veggies are a cheat - they're frozen ones in a bag. I know, I know. But it was still tasty.

Asian-Spiced Tilapia with Stir-Fry Veggies

4 tilapia filets
1/2 tsp chinese five-spice powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 cup soy sauce
dash of mirin
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp wasabe powder
1 pkg frozen stir-fry veggies

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and add 1/2 tbsp olive oil.

Mix together the five-spice powder, salt, pepper, and sprinke both sides of the tilapia filets with the mixture. Add to pan and sautee 1 minute each side. Remove fish from pan; keep warm.

Mix together soy sauce, mirin and chicken broth. Add to pan and whisk, loosening the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add spices and whisk more to combine. Add veggies and stir, coating them thoroughly in the sauce. Let cook about 5 minutes. Add fish on top of veggies and continue to cook, about 10 minutes, until fish is done. Plate and serve immediately.

This turned out great! I used fresh vegetables- mushrooms, spinach, yellow onions, green onions, carrots, minced garlic and I added frozen broccoli. I added some cayenne pepper to spice it up more and I was impressed. Thanks for sharing!
