Sauteed Tilapia with Honey-Scallion Dressing


Tilapia is one of my favorite fishes to cook -- it's delicious, healthy, fast, and budget friendly! I came across this recipe and decided to give it a go since I had all of the ingredients. Kim was my date tonight and she enjoyed it ... or so she said anyway :) I will definitely be adding this to my list of regulars! Ingredients

2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped green onions

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)

1/4 teaspoon dark sesame oil

1 tablespoon canola oil

4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Rice, rice noodles or salad greens (I used Uncle Ben's wild rice and had a separate salad on the side)


To prepare dressing, combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. To prepare fish, heat canola or olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper. Add fish to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Place fish on top of rice, rice noodles or salad. Top fish fillet with dressing.
