Tilapia Steamed With Ginger & Green Onions

rsz_tilapiaTilapia is a lean white fish with a mild taste.  It’s widely available, inexpensive and fast and easy to prepare.  This recipe is no exception.  It’s perfect for those days when you don’t feel like cooking a more elaborate meal.  This recipe serves two, but can easily be doubled to serve four.  Enjoy!

Serves 2


2 tilapia fillets (100 g/   each)

2 green onions, sliced (including green part)

2 tsp (10 mL)  ginger, grated or finely minced

¼ tsp (1 mL) freshly grated black pepper


1 tsp (5 mL) extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp (5 mL) light soy sauce

1 tsp (5 mL) honey

½ tsp (2.5 mL) lemon juice


  1.  Place tilapia fillets in steamer basket over boiling water.  Sprinkle sliced onion, minced ginger and freshly ground pepper over the tops of each fillet.
  2. Steam fillets for about 8 to 10 minutes or until they are opaque and flake easily with a fork.
  3. While the fillets are steaming mix together the olive oil, soy sauce, honey and lemon juice in a very small bowl.  Heat in the microwave until just warm (only about 10 to 15 seconds).
  4. When fish is ready, use a spatula to transfer to serving plates.  Drizzle warm sauce over fish and serve.
