This is a very tasty and easy to make Tilapia recipe. The almonds and Parmesan cheese make a crispy crust while the Lemon Pepper and California Granulated Garlic give a nice mix of flavors. Squeeze a little lemon juice over the fish just before serving. We served this dish with a side of Spinach Rice which adds a terrific, confetti-like burst of color.

This dish is fairly low in sodium and is a great source of protein and Omega-6 fatty acids, which help regulate metabolism and promote bone health. Tilapia is an excellent choice for those that want to expand their fish repertoire but are skittish about fishy tasting fish.
