RECIPE - Nut-Crusted Tilapia

11:20 AM Posted by Jamie

I just got my October 2009 issue of Prevention Magazine yesterday and went directly to the recipes in the back to see what wonderful goodness they have this month.  This is one of the easiest things to make - only 4 ingredients!  I also love fish, and this would be a great way to add something new to the lineup.  They didn't print nutrition information per serving for this recipe, but it would be easy to figure.  You can look up nutrition information for thousands of foods on and use those figures for the nuts, fish and lemons.  You can also get the information from whatever fruit salsa you choose from the container you purchase.

Nut-Crusted Tilapia

Finely chop 1 cup pecans in food processor or put in ziplock bag and crush with mallet.  Season both sides of 4 tilapia filets (about 1 1/2 lbs) with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Dredge fish in flour, shake off excess, dip in milk, and then coat thoroughly with nuts.  Head a thin layer of canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook fish until just done, turning once, about five minutes in all.  Stir the juice of half of a lime into 1 cup of fruity salsa (refrigerated produce case - we used Santa Barbara fresh mango-peach), and serve with the fish.  Serves 4.
