Fish is one we cannot do away at home and its mostly this and less of meat.

Lovely crispy fried talapia and nice with the ginger sauce. Like you, it must be with rice.

Fantastic way to prepare fish!! I recently bought some sweet soy sauce so I can't wait to try it out. I am glad you liked the award!! I think my blogger friendships are wonderful and I really enjoy sharing recipes with you. :)

Ah I love ginger sauce, never tried it with fish, love it with chicken so why I didn't think of it before? Wonder would it work with different kinds of fishes, never had Tilapia fillets! Best regards!
