Breaded Baked Tilapia with Raspberry Salsa

So I had to fend for myself for dinner. Being a little under the weather, I didn't feel much like eating but sucked it up to see what my options were. I'd just recently bought some raspberry salsa from the outlet store in Leeds, AL and was itching to try it out on something. The fastest thawing meat in the fridge was fish, so I hit up for some guidance. I found a recipe that looked good, but tweaked it a bit to fit what I actually had in the house:

Breaded Baked Tilapia with Raspberry Salsa

4-6 tilapia fillets 
lemon pepper (to taste)

1/2 cup almond slivers
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4  cup grated Parmesan cheese
3  tablespoons preferred oil (olive, canola, peanut, etc.)

3/4 cup mustard
3/4 cup natural honey

1 cup of Black Patch raspberry salsa for topping


1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy cleaning) and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, almond slivers and oil together in a bowl.

3. Place tilapia on prepared baking sheet. Mix the mustard and honey together in a separate bowl and glaze both sides of each piece of tilapia. 

4. Sprinkle the lemon pepper onto each side of the fillet.

5. Smother Cover each fillet with the bread crumb mixture. 

Can't see the fish? That's how I like it...

6. Bake at 425 degree F for 15 minutes or until tilapia flakes easily with a fork. 

7. Top each breaded fillet with raspberry salsa to taste.

8. Serve with your side dish of choice. I went with pasta noodles seasoned with Parmesan and garlic salt :)


There was so much flavor in this dish! And the crunchy almonds…good grub, I love almonds! You can totally substitute them with chopped walnuts or pecans, but you really can’t go wrong with either option! Unless you have nut allergies, then you might want to skip that part...

I have to admit...I didn't think it would be that good! I don't consider myself a chef...I just like to eat! But there was so much flavor! If you like a dish that has a perfect balance of sweet and tangy, the raspberry salsa and homemade honey mustard together is just awesome! I can't wait to try this salsa in another dish soon :)
