Sauteed Tilapia with honey scallion dressing over spinach or greens

What a great, healthy dish from Cooking Light. This would make for a perfect lunch or dinner as in our case. It was great on a tired Monday night to whip this up in no time! This serves 4 and I cut it in half for just the two of us!



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
4  cups  gourmet salad greens -I used spinach

To prepare dressing, combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

To prepare fish, heat canola 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. Arrange 1 cup greens on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 1 fish fillet; drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing.
