baking sheet
large salad bowl
3 medium bowls
large non-stick skillet
salt and pepper

Step 1: Roast the Squash

PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees.

ARRANGE the butternut squash on a baking sheet and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

SEASON to taste with salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.

ROAST until the squash is lightly browned and fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 2: Bread the Tilapia

While the squash is roasting…

PLACE 3 medium bowls side-by-side and add flour to the first bowl.

CRACK the egg in the second bowl and whisk until smooth.

ADD the panko herb mix to the third bowl.

SEASON the tilapia to taste with salt and pepper.

COAT both sides of a tilapia fillet in flour, shaking off the excess. Then coat both sides in egg followed by a generous amount of panko herb mix.

REPEAT with the second tilapia fillet.

Step 3: Cook the Tilapia

WARM the butter balls over medium heat in a large skillet.

PLACE the breaded tilapia in the pan.

COOK each side for 3–5 minutes until the breading is golden and the tilapia flakes easily with a fork.

Step 4: Prepare the Salad

TOSS the baby spinach leaves, chopped chives, pumpkin seeds, parmesan cheese, vinaigrette and roasted butternut squash in a large bowl.

Step 5: Serve It Up

CUT the lemon into rounds and squeeze over the tilapia.

SERVE the fish with the squash salad and enjoy!
