A sweet Asian-inspired sauce lends the tilapia loads of sweet and savory flavor, while the butter lettuce wraps add crunch and texture.

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon ginger, finely minced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, minced
Three 5-ounce tilapia fillets
4 butter lettuce leaves
How to Make It
In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, sesame oil, vegetable oil, ginger and half of the minced garlic.
In a medium frying pan, heat the extra-virgin olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook 5 minutes, until it starts to brown. Add the tilapia to the pan, and pour the sauce over top. Cook for 6 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily. When the tilapia is cooked through, break it into small pieces with a wooden spoon.
Divide the tilapia between the butter lettuce leaves and wrap the lettuce around the fish taco-style.
