Tilapia with Parsley Pesto


8 Tilapia fillets 
1 Italian parsley bunch
1 Chives bunch
4-5 garlic cloves
1/2 Cup olive oil
2 Tsp lemon juice
Crushed red peppers
Old Bay spice
Salt, pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cover a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
Place fish fillets on baking sheet and sprinkle with Old Bay, salt and pepper.
In the blender, combine parsley leaves, chopped chives, chopped garlic, a pinch of crushed red peppers, lemon juice and the olive oil. Blend until you have a creamy pesto.
Put the pesto over the fillets, spreading and pressing into the fish.
Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees, then switch to broil to crisp up the crust for the last 2-5 minutes.
When the middle of the fillet flakes with a fork and is completely opaque, it's time to eat!
