Pan-Seared Pepper Lime Tilapia with Quinoa Parsley Salad

Pan-Seared Pepper Lime Tilapia

March is the official month of Nutrition and in honor of this, we’ve created a wholesome, high-protein recipe packed full of nutrients.

Tilapia is a mild-tasting fish and a good source of protein, B12 and Omega-3 and it's low in calories. Quinoa is a powerhouse when it comes to health benefits and it packs more protein per gram than any other grain. When combined, tilapia and quinoa make the perfect nutrient-dense meal.
