  7. Rinse snapper under cold water, and pat dry.
  8. In a shallow bowl, mix together olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar, mustard, honey, green onions, and ginger to create the marinade.
  9. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  10. Dip snapper fillets in the marinade to coat both sides, and place in skillet.
  11. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  12. Pour remaining marinade into skillet. Reduce heat, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
