THRIVE Life: Peppercorn Crusted Tilapia Fillets



Admittedly this is my first time ever making Tilapia. I’ve eaten all kinds of fish but never tried this one. Was very happy with how it turned out and would probably make it again.

I did have an ulterior motive for wanting to try Tilapia. I’ve recently become interested in Aquaponics.

Aquaponics takes the best of Aquaculture-fish farming and Hydroponics-growing food in water, not soil and the most common fish grown happens to be Tilapia. It’s hearty and pretty forgiving of its water conditions as people go through the Aquaponics learning curve. Who knew… To learn about Aquaponics click here.



1. 6-8 Tilapia Fillet’s. I picked up a package of fresh fillet’s at Costco.

2. 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

3. 1 tbsp THRIVE Peppercorn Seasoning

4. 1 tsp Garlic Powder

5. 1 tsp THRIVE Parsley Flakes 

6. 1/2 cup Ghee or Butter to dredge the fillet’s. I used Ghee.



1. In a large mixing bowl mix together well all the dry ingredients.

2. Melt the Ghee or Butter in a shallow dish suitable for dredging the fish fillet’s.

3. Dredge fillet’s one at a time first in the Ghee then in the dry ingredients. Might want to pat the dry ingredients down on each side of the fillet’s.

4. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. I baked them on a wire rack/baking sheet from Williams Sonoma,  so they would be crisp but you could also use a plain baking sheet with a greased bottom as well.

5. Enjoy… THRIVE on!
