ROASTED TILAPIA WITH ALMONDS AND OLIVES

Roasting helps to bring out the natural juiciness of the food itself, creating a moist, flavorful and satisfying dish. This fish dish is topped with some of our MUFAs of course, creating a delicious mix of a tender fish and moist crunch, to make you taste buds and heart smile big. Not a fan of fish, you could easily substitute a veggie here too, like asparagus or string beans.
