  1. Turn on your oven’s broiler and place an oven rack about 6 inches (15 cm) below it. Line broiler pan with foil and brush with cooking oil. Place tilapia on foil skin-side down and broil until cooked through ~3 to 4 minutes (more or less depending on the thickness of the fish). Watch it closely near the end to make sure it doesn't overcook.
  2. While fish is cooking, toss slaw and drain any extra liquid from the bottom of the bowl. Season with some salt and pepper. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds over top.
  3. Serve tilapia over confetti slaw. Finish with hot sauce if you like a little extra spice!
