  • 4 tilapia fillets about 5-6 ounces each
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • ¼ cup finely chopped almonds*
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional garnish: lemon wedges and fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, or thyme


  • Preheat oven to BROIL.
  • Spray a large, rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Combine almonds and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Combine melted butter and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush the butter mixture on both sides of the fish.
  • Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet, bottom side UP, and broil for 4 minutes.
  • Flip the fish over, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and almonds, and return to the broiler for about 3-5 more minutes, or until topping is golden brown and the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • Garnish with lemon wedges and herbs.
  • *I use my Cuisinart Mini Prep Food Processor to chop the raw almonds in about 30 seconds!


Cooking Just for Two? This is a great recipe to scale down for a smaller family. Just bake 2 tilapia fillets and cut the rest of the ingredients in half. The cooking time will remain the same.
