Almond-Crusted Tilapia is a simple seafood supper with just six ingredients. If you don't have a skillet large enough to hold all the fillets comfortably, we recommend cooking them in batches. You can substitute catfish, flounder, or orange roughy for tilapia.

How to Make It

Step 1

Process 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor until finely chopped, and combine with 1/4 cup flour in a shallow bowl.

Step 2

Sprinkle fish evenly with salt; dredge in almond mixture.

Step 3

Melt butter with olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat; add fish, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove fillets to a serving plate.

Step 4

Add remaining 1/2 cup almonds to skillet, and cook, stirring often, 1 minute or until golden. Remove almonds with a slotted spoon, and sprinkle over fish.

One of my go-to tilapia recipes. I add some hot pepper.

Great taste! I even used whole wheat flour & a little vegetable oil since I didn't have olive oil. Hubby said it was the best tasting homemade fish he's had & he's not a seafood fanatic. Watch the How To video, it's more descriptive. Thanks!
