Broiled Tilapia with Mustard/Chive Sauce

I am always looking for ways to get more fish in our diet and this is a good sauce to use with the fish.  I think sour cream may get my vote instead of the yogurt, but the yogurt was good.  I didn't have any chives and was going to use scallion tops, but I forgot. The color would have been better for a picture and the onion taste would have been nice.  There is always next time.

For Fish:
Use as many fish as you have people.  Since it was just Jud and me I will give you that recipe.
2 tilapia filets
extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
salt and pepper to taste
Ingredients for Sauce:
1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 cup lemon juice- 1 lemon
2 T fresh chives
salt and pepper to taste
I always use the zest of the lemon when I use lemon juice
Method for fish:
Spray a baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Drizzle the fish with extra virgin olive oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Arrange the filets in a single layer and broil 6-8 minutes.  Set aside to cool.
Method for the Sauce:
Add all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until smooth.  Drizzle over cooked tilapia just before serving.
