Method

  1. Coat the fish fillets in the cornflour, then set aside. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, sizzle the fillets for 2-3 mins on each side until crisp, then remove and keep warm. In the same pan, briefly fry the spring onion, garlic and ginger, then add the soy sauce, brown sugar and lime juice and simmer until slightly syrupy. Spoon the sauce over the fish, scatter with chilli, Thai basil or coriander, then serve with the lime wedges.

Absolutely delicious! I made this for the first time this evening and served it with steamed rice and stir-fried veggies. It took no time at all to make and was so simple. I shall definitely be making this again, and soon - extremely tasty!

Really tasty and so simple. I used river cobbler which fried really well. I doubled up on the sauce quantity but used half soy sauce and half fish sauce. The fresh Thai basil gives a wonderful flavour. My normally fish-phobic husband loved it!

Excellent - used rapeseed oil instead of sunflower oil - it was very popular and certainly will be cooking it again,

This is now my absolute favourite way to cook tilapia. I did not have a fresh chili or coriander, so used dried chili flakes, and omitted the coriander. Still amazing! And so simple to make!!!!

Delicious. I used half an onion as suggested by another, ground ginger instead of fresh and omitted the chilli. I also used plain flour instead of corn and cod fillets. Delicious meal just using the ingredients I had in the kitchen at the time. :)
