My husband and I are trying to eat healthier and fresh foods are at the top of our list. I have never been much of a seafood fan, but this is so good I want to make it again soon! I just tweaked this recipe last night and this portion is perfect for just two people. Multiply this by the number of people and I am sure it will be a hit!

I served it with mashed sour cream and green onion potatoes, and a side of asparagus and tomatoes

What a quick, and easy dinner for two. The almond crust fries perfectly and has a slightly nutty flavor. We love the savoriness from the Parmesan cheese. It's delicious on the tender, delicate tilapia. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
