Sweet Chili Glazed and Walnut Crusted Tilapia with Roasted Asparagus

Hey everybody, I am so excited to be enjoying the week here in AZ with my family. My boys had the week off of school for “ski week” in CA, so what a perfect opportunity to visit home.

Before we left, I made this fabulous fish dinner and we all devoured it, even the kids loved it with a little side of ketchup. For some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, I’ve been afraid of cooking and eating fish in the past, but I’ve decided to grow up and start experimenting more with it. I know how healthy it is for you and for heaven sakes it’s delicious! So, for any of you who have been like me and have been a little stand offish towards fish….don’t be. It cooks up in minutes and is so delicious, I can’t wait to make more of it. Hope you all enjoy!



Sweet Chili Glazed and Walnut Crusted Tilapia with Roasted Asparagus

1 bunch of asparagus

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

¼ teaspoon garlic salt

3 Tablespoons honey

¼ teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon warm water

¾ Cup Panko Bread Crumbs

½ Cup ground walnuts (I ground them in food processor)

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon chili powder

¼ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

4 tilapia fillets

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1. Place asparagus onto a edge rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Roast in oven for 12-15 minutes or until fork tender, turning half way through. Remove and keep warm.

2. Place the honey, chili powder and warm water in a small bowl; mix to combine. Place crumbs, walnuts, salt, chili powder and pepper into a shallow dish; mix to combine. Season both sides of tilapia fillets with pinches of salt and pepper. With a pastry brush, brush honey glaze on both sides of tilapia then press into crumb mix. Continue until all fillets are coated.

3. Heat oil into a large skillet over medium heat. When hot place coated tilapia fillets into skillet; cook 2-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and fish flakes easy with a fork. Remove and serve warm.

4 servings

Have a great rest of your week, I’ll be enjoying AZ and will catch up with ya’ll early next week!!

    I used Mahimahi instead of Tilapia and it was delicious. I made it twice and the first batch was blackened but watched it closer the next batch.

  24. Janis Penick

    I’ve cooking the tilapia with asparagus and you don’t say which temperature to roast the asparagus. I’m in Hawaii and trying it with Mahimahi and will let you know how it turns out.
    Thank you,
    Janis

    I made this minus the walnuts (cause I didn’t have any) and let me say…I don’t, well have always claimed, like fish. This is awesome! I loved it and my boyfriend loved it. He loves fish and he can’t quit going on about how good it is. It is so easy too! Thanks! I love your site.

  26. The Welkers

    I tried this recipe this evening and it was awesome! What am I talking about… every recipe I have tried of yours is amazing! Thank you for helping me to spice up my kitchen!

  27. Liz

    I love the combo of the honey, chili powder and walnuts. Can’t wait to try this out with my boys. They really like tilapia because it’s nice and mild. I like it because of it’s flavor, versatility and the fact that it’s raised in many parts of the world in a sustainable way.

  28. renae

    This looks so good! Sweet & spicy – yum! Maybe I could finally get my family to eat fish with me!
    I Finally caught you on Food Network this weekend…You were fantastic!!

  29. Katrina

    That sounds really good. I’ve been “forcing” myself to like fish lately, too. I used to ONLY like halibut, but have decided I like other white fish, too, like tilapia and now even salmon! That’s a big fishy step for me.
    Looks like a yummy dinner–even my boys will eat salmon.

  30. Laura

    I have got to try this, only with pecans (I have several pounds of them). I can’t wait. It’s the only fish I can eat, other than shrimp and scallops. I can’t wait. Thanks Laura

  31. Patsyk

    Jenny – it’s so funny we both made roasted asparagus! LOL! You are right, great minds do think alike! 😉

    Love your seasoning for the fish… gonna have to give that a try. It must not be too spicy since your boys ate it, right?

    Enjoy your visit with the family!

  32. That Girl

    I KNEW it must be ski week! Yesterday at lunch, the hubs and I went to the museum quarter and it was SO crowded. Normally it’s empty on a Tuesday.

  33. skinnybovineskitchen

    confession: i’m afraid of fish, too. but my husband would pretty much love me if i made this. he used to eat tilapia all the time on his mission in the philippines. thanks for the recipe, jenny!

  34. carol

    I’ll fess up-the last time I cooked tilapia I made a total mess of it….wasn’t the recipe…it was a definite user malfunction. I’ll keep my eye on the tilapia at the store and when I see some that looks really nice, I want to try your recipe….those words “sweet chili” jumped RIGHT out at me! 🙂
