    ½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
    ½ tsp. coarse-ground black pepper
    1 lemon, sliced
    4 (4-to 6-oz.) fresh Rainforest tilapia fillets
    ½ c. Hy-Vee mayonnaise
    2 tbsp. Weber honey-garlic rub, divided
    ⅔ c. Hy-Vee chopped pecans
    ¼ c. Soirée grated Parmesan cheese

    Things To Grab

    • 2 baking sheets
    • Aluminum foil
