1 1/2 tablespoons
Chinese five-spice powder, or as needed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (8 ounce) package
baby spinach leaves
orange bell pepper, diced
grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
Asian-style salad dressing
1 1/2 tablespoons
toasted almonds, chopped
This was very good as well as quick and easy! I wasn't sure how I'd like the five-spice with fish, but it worked very well (and it masked the smell of the fish as it was cooking--bonus). I used catfish because the market was out of tilapia, and I added pecans because I didn't have enough almonds. The avocado, fish, and nuts worked really well together. I had lots of leftover salad, and it was delicious on its own (with dressing) the next day.
not a favorite. Definitely will not make again
I had everything on hand but the avocado and grapefruit. Used an orange instead, which was still yummy.
My husband raved about the "secret sauce" on the fish, thanked me for making THIS dinner. The Chinese 5 Spice brought a surprising sweetness to the dish.
It's a keeper! Delicious, fast, and easy. Next time I'll plan for it and have the grapefruit and avocado. Thanks for the recipe!
Made this several times now; the husband requests it! Awesome.
I also made my own five-spice and salad dressing, and substituted the grapefruit for an orange. It was tasty! I will definitely make this again. Even my meat-and-potatoes husband approved.
Made this tonight. Didn't want to buy Chinese five-spice powder or Asian dressing so made my own and both were great! Just did the rub with ginger, garlic, fresh ground black pepper, and cinnamon. The salad and fish combo with the dressing were delicious!
This was great. I don't like grapefruit so I substituted an orange and used a recipe for asian dressing I had on hand. If you are planning on serving this to four people I would double the amount of tilapia. My husband and I ate half of the salad portion but put an entire tilapia filet on top and it was the perfect amount of fish.
