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.



Brush your fish with olive oil


Sprinkle the tilapia with your crust


Bake at 375 degrees for 15 min.


I paired it with a side of sweet potatoes and brown rice!

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