I signed up for this site just so I could save this recipe. Excellent. I use whatever bread I have on hand and blend with almonds since I don't keep breadcrumbs. Also use a more highly seasoned rub on the fish, but that's the beauty of this recipe--great bones and you can flesh it out to your preference. Btw, rubbing mustard on fish before frying is an old southern staple--works great for fried catfish, too!
Very good, fast and easy recipe. Will definitely make it again. Even my husband liked it and he doesn't care for fish.
Very much enjoyed this recipe! The mustard was perfect, and the spices mixed well. Quick and easy to put together with the correct equipment. When I made this, it was a last minute meal and the fish were frozen. Although I was able to thaw them out, the thick sections took a while to cook because they were still a bit frozen in the middle. This caused me to flip the fish multiple times and in the process loose the seasoning and mustard. Definitely make sure the fish is thawed, and try to flip only once to keep breading intact.
Now that I think about it, I changed this up quite a bit, but I must give credit to this recipe for the inspiration. I used flounder instead of tilapia, and like others, I used Old Bay instead of Mrs. Dash. Otherwise I coated the fish exactly as written. I baked my fish rather than pan-frying, 425 for 15 minutes. To get the crunchy crust I sprayed the filets with olive oil spray before baking. I also cranked up the broiler for about 30 seconds at the end. Final result - delicious! I credit the dijon for giving this dish that extra something. Served with cheesy grits and green beans, my Alabama neighbors would have been proud.
Fresh and quick! The almond crust is lovely, and next time I'll try LovesToCook's suggestion of Old Bay seasoning. I dredged the fish in flour, then wet it in a mixture of egg white and dijon mustard, before breading.
I prepared this dish as directed in the recipe; substituted Penzey's Fox Point seasoning for the "Mrs. Dash". Easy prep, short cook time, excellent result. Enjoyed with green beans and fresh fruit; would be good with a fruit salsa. Definitely suitable for guests and perfect light summer fare.
Both my husband and myself really enjoyed this dish. I would definately make it again - this recipe is going into my recipe file!
My boyfriend & I made this over the weekend, along with the steamed green beans and red mashed potatoes shown in the picture. The meal was incredible. We used three 4-5 oz fillets instead of the recommended two 6 oz fillets. We still had extra seasoning left over. We cooked it a bit longer than just 3 mins on each side, and did need to add a bit more oil when cooking the second side. These are the only modifications that we made. It was a really fast meal, and it is very healthy too. It will be in our permanent recipe file. It would be good to make for company too. The three dishes- the fish, the mashed potatoes, and the green beans were perfect to cook with a partner too, as we were able to get the timing perfect for everything to finish cooking together. We enjoyed the cooking date =)
We loved this dish. It was simple, fast and flavourful. I did substitute Old Bay seasoning for the non-salt garlic seasoniong, but other than that made it as written. Served with steamed broccoli and grated peccorino and a salad.
Mustard gives it a nice flavor and the coating gets nice and crunchy. I would eat this on a regular basis because its healthy and pretty tasty.
Thought the seasoning was poor - not enough flavor (following the directions), the amount of oil was not enough to crisp up the fish with the almonds and breadcrumbs and the cooking time took longer than stated (perhaps the filets I used were too large). I would not make this again.
