Method

Before You Begin

Gino's Tip

Cracked black pepper works best with the dish adding flavour bombs and texture.

Step 1 - Green Rice

Before cooking, use a colander to rinse your rice until the water runs clear. Place your rice and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cover with a lid. Once it comes to the boil, reduce the heat to low and cook until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is soft, about 12-15 minutes. If not done to your liking, add small amounts of water at a time and continue cooking till soft and sticky. While your rice is cooking pan fry your edamame and chopped sugar snap peas in a medium frying pan over medium heat for 4-5 minutes add your butter to melt through once done. Once your rice has cooked stir through your pan-fried greens. Taste and season your rice with salt and pepper.

Step 2 - Salt and Pepper Tilapia

Season your tilapia fillets well with salt and pepper - a bit extra pepper if your a fan of it. Heat a large frying pan over med-high heat, once your pan is hot and just beginning to smoke, add a drizzling of olive oil and fry your tilapia for 2-3 minutes on each side. Be sure to allow your fish to crust on one side before turning it over. Once done remove your pan from the heat and drizzle over your soya, teriyaki and ginger mixture.

To serve

Divide your greens rice amongst your servings and top with your salt and pepper tilapia and pan sauce. Enjoy!
