Easy One Pan Dinners for Two – Almond Crusted Tilapia Filets with Garlic Snow Peas



Parmesan & Almond Crusted Tilapia

½ cup almond flour

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

salt & pepper, to taste

2 tilapia filets (4-6 oz each)

2 Tbsp oil/ghee

1 lemon, zest & juice (to add after cooking)

Garlic Snow Peas

½ lb fresh snow peas

drizzle of oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

salt & pepper, to taste

1 lemon, zest & juice (to add after cooking)

2 Tbsp toasted almonds (to add after cooking)

Mango Rhubarb Salsa

1 stalk rhubarb, diced

½ cup mango, diced

½ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered

¼ cup red onion, diced

1 jalapeño, seeded & diced

2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

1 lime, juiced

salt, to taste


  • In a large, flat dish, combine almond flour, Parmesan cheese, and spices for tilapia coating. Press each tilapia filet in flour mixture to coat both sides, using hands as needed to get a nice even coating.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, toss snow peas with oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet or pan over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes and add cooking fat of choice (i.e. oil/ghee). Spread oil or ghee across the bottom of the pan to coat.
  • Add coated tilapia filets to one half of the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • On the other half of the pan, add seasoned snow peas and saute while the fish cooks.
  • Finish whole dish in the pan with lemon zest and juice, and sprinkle toasted almonds onto snow peas.
  • In a separate bowl, combine salsa ingredients and mix well to integrate.
  • Top crusted tilapia with rhubarb salsa, serve on a plate with cooked snow peas, and enjoy!
