Lean Pesto Tilapia

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 32 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 Tilapia Filets we use frozen from Costco
  • 1/2 Cup Prepared Pesto


  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drizzle the pesto evenly over each filet of fish.
  • Place in a lightly greased baking dish and bake for 25-35 minutes.
  • Serve over rice or garlic quinoa.


You can actually bake these filets frozen. No need to even let them defrost if you don't have time, though you may want to add a few extra minutes onto the baking time.
