How To Make Steamed Lemon Tilapia with Teriyaki Sauce

Where do you even begin with seafood? You might find yourself overwhelmed by the vast selection of seafood dishes to choose from, but fret not! Our seafood recipes are here to help you out!

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 25 minutes



  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  1. Place the tilapia fillets on a steamer rack or in a steamer basket. Arrange the lemon slices on top of the fillets.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, grated ginger, minced garlic, and cornstarch. Pour the sauce over the fish and lemon slices.

  3. Fill a pot or wok with water and bring it to a boil. Place the steamer rack or basket in the pot, making sure the water doesn’t touch the fish. Cover and steam for 10-15 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  4. While the fish is steaming, bring the remaining sauce to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.

  5. Carefully remove the steamed fish from the pot and transfer to a serving plate. Drizzle with the teriyaki sauce and sprinkle with sliced green onions.

  6. Serve the tilapia with steamed rice and your favorite vegetable for a complete meal.
