Tilapia with Green Beans and Tomatoes

This is a super light, filling and delicious dinner.  It's also very quick to put together.  Yum!  Enjoy!
-2 Tbs flour
-2 tsp dried oregano
-2 tsp dried parsley flakes
-salt and pepper, to taste
-6 (4 oz) tilapia fillets
-4 Tbs butter or margarine
-1/2 lb fresh green beans (not canned)
-2 garlic cloves, minced
-about 6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
-1 Tbs lemon juice
-1/4 cup water
Ina large skillet, melt 3 Tbs of the butter.  Meanwhile, combine flour, oregano and parsley in a shallow dish.  Season with salt and pepper.  Dredge the fish in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.  Add fish to melted butter and cook until golden brown and cooked through.  Remove fish from skillet and cover with foil to keep warm.
To the same skillet, add the green beans and garlic.  Cook for about 2 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper, and add the tomatoes.  Cook for 1 minute.  Add the lemon juice and water.  Cover and cook until beans are tender-for about 3 minutes.  Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining 1 Tbs butter until just melted.  Divide the fish and vegetables among plates and enjoy!

Love this recipe, Ioana! We always make this with some variations (I have yet to try the tomato in it!) Love love love light fish like Tilapia, and tender green beans are my fave! :)
