Light Flax & Oat Baked Tilapia

Recipe by magpie diner
READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 8 portions




  • Put all the dry ingredients into your magic bullet or blender (from oats to pepper in the list), and process until you have a smooth texture.
  • Get 2 large bowls out, add the egg whites to one bowl, whisk them up a bit. Add the coating mixture to the other bowl.
  • Using one hand, add about half of your tilapia to the egg white bowl, mix it up to coat them all. With your other hand, coat each filet one by one in the flax/oat mixture, getting it even on each side and both ends. Transfer to an oiled baking sheet. Do same with the second half of the filets. You may need a second cookie sheet depending on the size.
  • Spritz the top of the filets with oil if you like (ie with an oil sprayer or store bought oil spray).
  • Bake on 375 for about 20 minutes, flipping them half way through. Alternatively you could broil 3-4 minutes per side. Serve 2 pieces per person, with sauce on the side. Enjoy!
