Tilapia Stir Fry With Orange and Ginger Sauce


1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 cup red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups carrot, shredded
2 cups spinach, chopped
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 pound tilapia, cut into large chunks as it will break up when added to the stir fry
1/2 cup cooked rice, brown preferred


Combine orange juice, ketchup, honey, soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan and simmer on medium for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes until sauce reduces and thickens.
Heat a wok or large skillet over medium high heat with 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes until softened. Add shredded carrot and cook another 3 – 5 minutes to soften vegetables. Add spinach and cook another 3 minutes to wilt then remove to a bowl.
Add remaining coconut oil to the pan and add tilapia. Cook tilapia gently so that it doesn’t break up, turning to cook through.
When tilapia is just cooked, add vegetables back to the pan with sauce.
Serve over rice.


Meaty tilapia served with colorful vegetables and a sweet orange sauce makes for a colorful meal when served with a nutty brown rice.
