Almond Crusted Tilapia

I am reposting a recipe I got off of my friend Katelyn's blog, Domestic Charm. I made this last night and it was beyond easy and SO SO GOOD. Almonds and tilapia are both really good for you so I was excited to use a recipe that had both. I paired it with bow-tie and peas. Chris and Jackson both enjoyed it so I will definitely be making it again.


1 cup sliced almonds, divided
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 (6-oz.) tilapia fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil

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

2. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt; dredge in almond mixture.

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.

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.
