Vegetable oil cooking spray

4 (5 to 6-ounce) tilapia fillets

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


1/4 cup plain, full-fat Greek yogurt

2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 cup lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. For the fish: Preheat a broiler. Spray a small baking sheet or flameproof baking dish with vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Drizzle the tilapia fillets on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the fillets in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and broil until cooked through and the flesh flakes easily with a fork, about 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. For the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, agave nectar, and mustard until smooth. Whisk in the lemon juice and chives. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Transfer the tilapia to a serving platter and drizzle with the sauce.
