Preheat oven to 375ºF. Prepare fresh pomegranate arils, if necessary.* Reserve 1/2 cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. Press 2 tablespoons of juice for use with potatoes and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.) Heat add olive oil and panko in a small skillet.

Cook over medium heat and stir until crumbs are lightly browned. Mix browned panko together with parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Dip tilapia fillets in egg beaten with lemon juice and then roll into panko mixture. Place fillets in a greased casserole dish and bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Garnish with more chopped parsley and arils; serve with potatoes. Serve this pomegranate recipe.

*To prepare fresh pomegranate arils, score 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate and place in a bowl of water.  Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils (seed sacs).  The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top.  Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl.


  • 1/2 cup arils from 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate or Pom Pomegranate Arils
  • 4 6-oz. skinless tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup panko or bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
