  • 2 large Our Family® Egg Whites
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 3 cups cornflakes, crushed into coarse crumbs
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • 1 tbsp. chopped Open Acres® Red Onion

1. Prepare Fish: Preheat oven to 350°. Spray rimmed baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In wide, shallow dish, whisk egg whites until frothy. In separate wide, shallow dish, combine garlic, cornflake crumbs, parsley, basil, lemon pepper and lemon zest.

2. Dip each tilapia fillet in egg whites, then in cornflake crumb mixture, patting lightly so mixture adheres to both sides. Place tilapia on prepared baking pan.

4. Meanwhile, prepare Avocado Sauce: In food processor with knife blade attached, blend all ingredients until mixture is well combined, scraping bowl occasionally with rubber spatula.
