Ginger Scallion Tilapia with Tofu

Updated on April 3, 2015
anglnwu profile image

A certified health and wellness coach, I love discussing food, health benefits and how to keep weight in check,

Eat at least 2 times of fish a week, admonished health experts. The American Heart Association said it. Health researches point to the strong correlation between heart health and fish eating. Fish is versatile and it takes on the flavor of seasonings and you can create, permutate and invent many interesting variations with some imagination. In this dish, tilapia is used. It has half the calories of salmon and is low in sodium and rich in phosphorus and niacin as well as selenium, protein and vitamin B12. Toss in a few fat-busting ingredients like ginger, scallion and nutritious low-fat tofu, and you have yourself one simple healthy dish.

Ginger Scallion Tilapia
Ginger Scallion Tilapia


3 pieces of Tilapia

3 to 4 thumbs of ginger, julienne

2 stalks of scallion, shredded lengthwise

1 slab of silken tofu, cut into cubes

2 tomatoes, cut into wedges

Salt and pepper

Sauce (whisk the following together)

2 tablespoons of soya sauce

1 teaspoon of sesame oil

½ teaspoon of brown sugar


  • · Season tilapia slightly with salt and pepper.
  • · Spray 11” by 7” baking dish with fat-free spray.
  • · Add one layer of tofu and tomatoes (save some for topping)
  • · Lay Tilipia on top.
  • · Add remaining tofu and tomatoes.
  • · Sprinkle ginger and scallion on top.
  • · Drizzle sauce over the tilapia.
  • · Bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes or until it bubbles.

Serve over brown rice. Enjoy! If you prefer fish soup, just add one can of reduced sodium chicken broth to baking dish before you bake. Increase baking time to half an hour.

    Carlota, thanks for dropping by. Yes, you can definitely use the vegetarian stir-fry which i believe is a version of oyster sauce. The sauce is already sweet, so you may want to go easily on the brown sugar. If you don't have sesame oil (it gives it a distinctive Chinese flavor), use a little oil (canola, vegetable...just not olive oil--will produce a totally different taste).

    As for the scallion, there is really no hard and fast rule about that. You can even cut it in chunks( or slice it however you want it) and yes, include the white part.

    Let me know how it goes. Once again, appreciate your visit.

    Thanks Angie for this recipe. I will try it out tonight but do you think I can use the 'vegetarian stir-fry sauce' in lieu of your sauce recipe (sacrificing the sesame oil)? It's because I do not have one handy.

    As for the scallion, should I use all the tips including the white bottom parts ?
