Tortilla crusted tilapia is a macro-friendly dinner that cooks in less than 30 minutes! Super flakey fish, crispy crushed tortilla chips, roasted potatoes, and brussel sprouts cook up in one pan for a full flavor and healthy meal.
Tortilla Crusted Tilapia
By now you know I love my egg whites! Like my Whipped Egg white massive oatmeal and Carrot Cake Egg Crepes. Why am I telling you this? Because tilapia is the egg whites of fish! Tilapia has lots of protein, almost no fat, and no carbs just like egg whites.
Tilapia is also a very mild flakey fish, perfect for someone who isn’t a big fan of seafood.
I paired my tortilla crusted tilapia with perfectly roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts. Just look at the color of those veggies! You know I have a soft spot for potatoes but you don’t have to combine them with the fish. You can use carrots, broccoli, or any other vegetable of your choice!

- cut the potatoes and Brussel sprouts into quarters and place on the prepared tray. Lightly coat with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the veggies on one side of the tray. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.
- While veggies are cooking, cut fish into 4 equal pieces and spread hoisin sauce evenly over the top of each.
- Place crushed chips in a bowl and dip the fish, hoisin side down, into the chips to coat the top.
- Remove tray of veggies from the oven after the 15 minutes are up and place the chip coated fish, chip side up, on the empty side of the tray. Give the veggies a toss and return to the oven for 10-15 more minutes or until fish is cooked through. (Fish will flake easily with a fork when done)
