Tilapia fillets are served with crisp green beans in this Asian-style meal.
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Place fish in a shallow baking dish.
For marinade, stir together soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Pour marinade over fish, turning to coat. Cover with foil and marinate at room temperature 20 minutes. Drain fish, reserving marinade. Add the 1/4 cup water to the reserved marinade.
In a large nonstick skillet, combine green beans and the 2 Tablespoons water. Cook, covered, over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add canola oil. Cook, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until beans are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Transfer beans to a serving platter; cover and keep warm.
Meanwhile, coat another large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to hot skillet; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once. Sprinkle beans with sesame seeds; arrange fish on top of beans.
Wipe out skillet with a paper towel. Add the reserved marinade to skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat 1 minute. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Drizzle marinade over fish; sprinkle with green onions.
