How to Make Almond Crusted Tilapia
- Beat 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.
- Melt 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)
- Transfer 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.
