Pumpkin Seed Encrusted Baked Tilapia

Raw pumpkin seeds are everywhere this time of year. My toddler loves to snack on them and I feel good knowing she is having a healthy snack packed with vitamins, iron and minerals. They also add a wonderful nutty texture and flavor to fish. I simply grind them and toss them with panko and seasoning, then top my fish, drizzle a little oil and bake.
