  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 (5 ounce) tilapia fillets (fresh or frozen, thawed)
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt plus ¼ teaspoon, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil; brush with 1 Tbsp. oil. Bring fish to room temperature by letting it stand on the counter for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together hazelnuts, parsley, shallot, lemon zest, 1 tsp. oil, ⅛ tsp. salt, and ⅛ tsp. pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Pat both sides of the fish dry with a paper towel. Place the fish on the prepared baking sheet. Brush both sides of the fish with lemon juice and the remaining 2 tsp. oil. Season both sides evenly with the remaining ¼ tsp. salt and ⅛ tsp. pepper. Divide the hazelnut mixture evenly among the tops of the fillets and pat gently to adhere.
  4. Roast the fish until it is opaque, firm, and just beginning to flake, 7 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
