Pan Fried Tilapia With Mango and Nuoc Nam Sauce – Dana Shortt Gourmet

Pan Fried Tilapia With Mango and Nuoc Nam Sauce

The original recipe calls for yellow-tail snapper but it wasn’t available so I substituted tilapia.

Pan Fried Tilapia With Mango and Nuoc Nam Sauce

  • Four 6 to 8 ounce tilapia fillets

For Nuoc Nam Sauce

  • 1/4 cup sugar
