Pumpkin Seed Encrusted Baked Tilapia

Standard

Hola!

Wow! That’s a long title! When I’m busy in the evening I like making quick meals. Sometimes they are healthy and sometimes not so much. This one is quite healthy and is delicious! I was able to whip this up quickly yesterday for dinner. Check it out…

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp panko crumbs
  • 1 tsp dry parsley
  • course salt such as kosher
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 pieces (5.5 oz each) tilapia filets
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • olive oil spray
Directions:
Grind the pumpkin seeds in a food processor or coffee grinder. Combine crushed pumpkin seeds, panko, parsley, pinch of salt and fresh pepper and set aside.Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up. Drizzle 1/4 tsp oil on each tilapia filet. Rub over fish to coat, season with salt and pepper and topwith crushed garlic.

Add crumbs to the top, mist with a little oil and place in the center of the oven.

Bake for 15 minutes or until fish is cooked through, then broil for 1 – 2 minutes, or until crumbs are golden (be careful not to burn).

I didn’t have any raw pumpkin seeds (nor did I feel like running to the store) so I replaced them with raw sunflower seeds. The fish was delicious! Even my youngest daughter liked it…she’s a pretty daring eater.
