This tender delicious recipe is perfect for a family with kids. Mine devoured it! My eleven year old claims that the walnut and Parmesan combination is "mouth exploding." Add herbs of your choice!

  • 4 tilapia, fresh, wild-caught
  • 1 c. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 1 c. cheese, parmesan, raw, organic
  • 4 tsp. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Rinse filets, and place on parchment paper. Grind walnuts and Parmesan together (I used my coffee grinder). Place walnuts and Parmesan in a bowl (or in a plastic bag if you prefer). Add whatever spices/herbs you like to the mixture. Coat filets with the mixture however you choose. (I just crumbled it on top of the filets and pressed down to make a nice layer.) Drizzle about a teaspoon of coconut oil on top of each filet (works best in liquid form).
