Recipe Ingredients for Almond Encrusted Tilapia Filets

1 egg
1/2 tsp. lemon pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup almonds, ground coarsely
24 oz. tilapia filets
1 tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tbsp. flour (for dusting)
2 tbsp. butter
1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided
1 Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Almond Encrusted Tilapia Filets

  1. In shallow bowl, beat egg with lemon pepper and garlic powder until blended; set aside.

  2. Stir together the ground almonds, 1/2 cup Parmesan and parsley flakes in a shallow pan or plate; add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and set aside.

  3. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat; dust the tilapia in the flour and shake off the excess. Dip the tilapia in the egg mixture, then press into the almond mixture.

  4. Cook tilapia in melted butter (med-high heat) until golden on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and sprinkle fish with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan; cover and continue cooking until the Parmesan has melted somewhat, about 4 to 5 minutes.

  5. Transfer to heated platter and garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges, if desired.
