Honey Mustard Tilapia with Onions and Broccoli

5 from 1 vote


  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup plus 1-2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 medium onion thinly sliced into rings
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (if you aren't saving the heels of your bread loves in the freezer, start now! You can either buy day-old bread or leave a few slices out on the table to get stale.)
  • 1 pound tilapia filets
  • 1 pound broccoli florets cut into bite-sized pieces (or however you like your broccoli)


  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Make a vinaigrette by whisking together honey, mustard, vinegar, and oil.
  • Toss the broccoli in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (or whatever oil you use at home). Cover a shallow baking dish with the oily broccoli, and roast it for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the florets are starting to brown and get soft. Toss roasted broccoli in 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette; set aside.
  • Toss onion with 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette. Arrange in a single layer on a bar pan (or other shallow baking dish). Bake 5 minutes.
  • While the onions are baking, add 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette to the breadcrumbs. Pour another tablespoon of the vinaigrette into a shallow dish. Coat each piece of tilapia with vinaigrette, then top it with breadcrumbs.
  • Place the now-breaded tilapia filets on top of the partially-cooked onions. Bake until the fish is thoroughly cooked, about 7 minutes.
  • To serve, top the fish with onions and a healthy heap of roasted broccoli.
