I have a secret: I put hummus on top of tilapia and Chris LOVED it!! Sometimes, if you don't tell your picky eaters what's on the plate, they find that they love things they never thought they would love! It's sort of like when I was growing up and my parents took us to a Rocky Mountain Oyster feed. I had no idea what I was eating, but I loved it! Ok, I loved it until my dad whispered "you're eating cows balls" in my ear....then I pretend I did like them, but honestly, I loved them. I couldn't wait for the next time we had them!! lol
This is a very simple and healthy week night meal. If you really felt inclined, you could make your own hummus, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I used store bought. It was convenient and it was perfect!
Hummus Topped Tilapia
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
4 tilapia fillets
1-2 Tablespoons red pepper hummus (or any flavor you want - the amount you use is up to you, depends on how thick you want the layer of hummus to be)
3 Tablespoons panko
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Rinse the fish, pat dry with paper towel, and place in prepared dish. Spread an even amount of hummus on top of each piece of fish. Sprinkle with panko and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Enjoy!
