Pesto Crusted Tilapia

A couple of weeks ago at work, we had this AMAZING pesto crusted salmon left over from a meeting. I have wanted to recreate the recipe ever since, and decided to give it a try with tilapia. I'm sure you could use this topping on any fish and it would be fantastic -- I'm dying to try it with a nice big piece of salmon. It is such an easy recipe and I'm sure it would be even better with homemade pesto.
