Pumpkin Seed Crusted Tilapia

I bought some pumpkin seeds last week to put on my salad and I wanted to find another way to use them.

I saw a recipe for using pumpkin seeds on tilapia this week and thought it sounded so good. And it was! I think this is my new favorite tilapia recipe.

Tilapia is a very mild fish, that’s why I love it so much. It cooks really fast and it contains Omega-3 which is good for your heart!

Throw your pumpkin seeds in the food processer with garlic cloves, parsley, and bread crumbs.

Pumpkin Seed Crusted Tilapia

2 Tablespoon Pumpkin seeds (I used salted but unsalted will work just fine)

2 Tablespoon Italian bread crumbs

1 Teaspoon  dried Parsley

2 clove Garlic ( or one large clove)

Olive oil

3 tilapia filets

 

1. Preheat oven to 375. Crush garlic with knife. Place seeds, bread crumbs, parsley, and garlic in food processer and pulse a few times.

2. Bush both sides of tilapia with olive oil.

3. Sprinkle crust mix on both sides of tilapia and bake for 15min

  2. Mona,

    Kyles' mom told me that you had posted about this recipe. It sounds WONDERFUL!! We have one pumpkin left from Halloween that we didn't carve so SOMEBODY (not me-I suspect grandpa and Kasey) will have the happy task of gathering the seeds. Kasey and I will salt and bake them, and then everybody will get to enjoy the Tilapia. We LOVE Tilapia.
    Thanks for all your yummy ideas.
    Blessings,
    Sue
