4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 4 (5 ounce) tilapia fillets (fresh or frozen, thawed)

  • cup finely chopped hazelnuts

  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 small shallot, minced

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest

  • teaspoon salt plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees 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, 1/8 tsp. salt, and 1/8 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 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
