Asian-Style Tilapia Recipe

Asian-Style Tilapia


  • 4 tilapia filets (about 2 lbs)
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • chopped green onion
  • sesame seeds


  1. Season both sides of the tilapia filets lightly with salt and pepper then dredge each filet in flour. Shake to remove excess flour then set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat then add the peanut oil (if you don’t have peanut oil, don’t worry—you can use olive oil or vegetable oil). When the oil is simmering, add the tilapia filets and brown lightly on each side. The fish should be opaque and lightly golden brown but not overcooked. This will take about 3 minutes on the first side and 1–2 minutes on the second side.
  3. Transfer the filets to a warm serving platter and cover lightly with foil.
  4. Return the skillet to the stove and reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic and ginger to the peanut oil that remains in the skillet and cook until the garlic is just beginning to lightly brown.
  5. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the sesame oil, soy sauce, honey and lemon juice and stir to combine.
  6. Spoon the sauce over the tilapia filets and sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve immediately and enjoy!
