Total time
A delicious, fresh, and healthy meal for two in under 20 minutes.
Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 3 cups kale
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp raw almonds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 fillets Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia with Garlic & Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ lb angel hair pasta
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Pre heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. First make the pesto while your oven heats up.
  3. Throughly wash your lemon, cut off the ends, split in half and remove any seeds. Add the whole lemon to a blender or food processor. The lemon peeling gives wonderful flavor to the pesto.
  4. Add in kale, olive oil, water, almonds, salt, and black pepper - puree on high until ingredients are combined to create the kale pesto.
  5. The oven's ready. Remove your 2 fillets of Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia with Garlic & Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the freezer and place them in parchment paper packets (included in the packaging). Set the seasoned side up and put the fish on a baking sheet. Set your oven timer for 18 minutes.
  6. Prepare the lemon pasta.
  7. Bring water to a boil in a large pot, zest and juice your second lemon while you are waiting.
  8. Add butter and black pepper to the lemon and mix throughly.
  9. Drain the pasta and stir in the lemon/butter combination.
  10. By now your fish should be ready for plating - serve it over a bed of pasta and drizzle kale pesto on top.
