This is a really easy, fast way to prepare tilapia fillets. My whole family loves it, even the babies! The basis for this recipe came from the back of the bag of frozen fillets.

Great fast,healthy and tasty recipe. Perfect for a weeknight dinner. As someone else mentioned, after putting the almonds on top of the fish, I put the whole thing in the oven for a while to crisp things up and cook the fish a little more.
