Sweet Mustard + Spring Onion Tilapia

It had been far too long since I had whipped up a proper sit down dinner. My work days tend to frequently run into dinnertime, so I'm typically eating something I prepped earlier in the day.  With this warmer weather up here in Portland and a day off, I was finally able to light some candles, open up all the windows, play some good music, open a bottle of white wine and make this dinner for myself and a girl friend.  The kitchen really is my happy place.

You know how everyone has their signature dish or their go-to meal if you are trying to impress someone? Yep, this just might be my new one, and maybe yours as well now. Pairing it with the sweet potato and lemon sauteed swiss chard was the perfect combo.

Start your taste buds everyone!

Sweet Mustard & Spring Onion Tilapia
serves 4


For the Fish...

4 tilapia fillets
Olive oil, for drizzling
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Sauce...

1/4 cup plain goats milk yogurt (i like goats milk yogurt, as it digests better than greek yogurt)
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 large Meyers lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh green onion
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat a broiler.
For the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, honey, and mustard until smooth. Whisk in the lemon juice and green onion. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
For the fish: On a baking sheet, drizzle the tilapia fillets on both sides with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Broil until cooked through for about 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside.

Transfer the tilapia to a serving platter and drizzle with the sauce.
