Description

A flavorful and healthy way to enjoy baked tilapia! This recipe is easy to throw together, and one the whole family will love!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Raw Almonds
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 dash Salt And Pepper
  • 2 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, At Room Tempurature
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard
  • 1-½ teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • ⅓ cups Almond Flour
  • 16 ounces, weight Tilapia Fillets
  • Fresh Lemon Juice, To Serve

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425ºF.

Place almonds in a food processor and blend until coarsely chopped. Place almonds on a plate and add Parmesan cheese. Add a dash of salt and pepper, mix, and set aside.

In a shallow dish or plate, mix cream cheese, mustard, and lemon juice. Blend with a fork until smooth. Add a dash of ground black pepper. (You can also mix these ingredients in a bowl with an electric mixer and then transfer to a shallow dish or plate afterwards.)

Place almond flour on a plate. Dip each fillet into almond flour, removing any excess. Place filet in cream cheese mixture and coat thoroughly. (Warning: This part can be kind of messy. You can use a spoon or spatula to spread a generous amount of the cream cheese mixture onto the filets, or if you’re feeling adventurous just dig in a use your hands!) Next, roll fillet in almond and Parmesan mixture. Make sure to coat it all!

Place fillet on a pre-greased, tin-foil-lined baking sheet. (You can sprinkle a little extra Parmesan on top of each filet at this point if you prefer more!) Cook in oven at 425ºF for 13–15 minutes. Fish should be white and flaky once cooked through.

Transfer fish to serving plate and top with lemon juice and salt and pepper. This can be served with steamed vegetables, rice, or noodles. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe is intended for each fillet to be split in two, so each serving is about 4 ounces.
