While bread crumbs can be soggy when you try to coat moist fish, pistachios are guaranteed to give you that satisfying crunch. This dinner pairs well with a sweet potato and veggies.
1 cup shelled pistachios
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each)
2 tablespoons honey
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Grind pistachios, garlic, basil, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a small food processor. Transfer mixture onto a plate. Rinse tilapia and pat dry with a paper towel. Coat top side of each fillet with 1 teaspoon honey. Press honey-coated side into pistachio mixture. Place fish, pistachio side up, on prepared pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes until fish flakes with a fork.
