3 medium bowls

Step 1: Broil the Squash

PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees.

ARRANGE the butternut squash in a baking pan and drizzle with the contents of the olive oil packet.

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

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

Step 2: Bread the Tilapia

While the butternut 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 fillets generously 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 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 5-7 minutes until the breading is golden and the tilapia flakes easily with a fork.

Step 4: Prepare the Salad, Serve & Enjoy!

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

CUT the lemon into rounds on cutting board and squeeze over the tilapia.

SERVE fish with the squash salad and enjoy!
