Ingredients

1
egg
1 tsp
lime zest
1 tsp
fresh garlic
1 c
almonds, sliveres
1/2 c
freshly grated parmesan cheese
4 (6) oz
tilapia fillets
1/4 c
all-purpose flour for dusting
2 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 pinch
salt & pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1Beat egg with the lime zest, pepper, and garlic well blended; set aside. Stir together ground almonds with Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish until combined; set aside. Dust the tilapia fillets with flour, shake off excess. Dip the tilapia in egg, then press into the almond mixture.

2Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; Cook tilapia in melted butter & olive oil until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. (Butter easily burns so clarified the butter first, this way it won’t burn)

3Transfer the tilapia on top of thinly sliced fanned out granny smith apples, next to a nice helping of my the grilled corn blackberry salad. Then “drizzle” with my becon maple reduction sauce over the fish and serve.
