Lemon Rosemary Tilapia Amandine
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 14 mins
Total time: 24 mins
  • 2 tilapia fillets, defrosted
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
  1. Preheat a toaster oven or oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with olive oil, using a brush or your fingers.
  3. Place the two tilapia fillets on the baking sheet.
  4. In a small bowl, add the juice from ½ lemon, freshly grated lemon zest from the ½ lemon, olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir well.
  5. Evenly distribute between the two fillets, using a brush to completely cover them with the lemon mixture on one side.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then quickly remove and top each fillet with 1 tbsp slivered almonds.
  7. Set the oven to broil, and broil for a few minutes - make sure to watch carefully because you want the almonds to be slightly browned but not burnt!
  8. Garnish with lemon slices and fresh rosemary on top, then serve immediately.
Makes 2 fillets
