1/2 lb Green beans
1/4 cup Orange juice
2 cups Steamed white rice

When hot add the ginger and garlic and sauté for about 1 minute. Then add the sugar, soy sauce, and green beans and cook over medium heat stirring ever few minutes. Cook until almost tender, about 12 minutes. When the green beans are almost tender add the bean sprouts and mix well. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes more.
Place the sesame seeds in a bowl. Season both sides of the fish filets with salt and pepper. Then coat both sides of the fish in sesame seeds. The seeds should stick to the fish.

Then turn the fish and finish cooking the other side about 5 minutes. The fish is done with the flesh is firm and opaque.
