I’m all about easy recipes that pack a lot of flavor. I think this recipe for Almond Crusted Tilapia checks both of those boxes, easy and flavorful.
Remember the other day when I posted my recipe for Honey Nut and Oat Granola Bars? Since I only used 1/3 cup of the almonds in the bag for that recipe, I decided to whip up something else using some of those leftover almonds. This time though, instead of creating something sweet, I went with something savory!
We usually have fish on the menu a couple times a week. We cook it in a variety of ways so that we don’t get bored and this way is my favorite!
Seriously y’all, if you like mild fish like Tilapia, you will absolutely adore this recipe. It’s an easy recipe that doesn’t require much skill or time and the results are absolutely delightful.
If you don’t normally eat fish because you don’t like the fishiness, Tilapia is about as mild as it comes. It’s a delicate, slightly sweet fish that you really can’t even tell is fish. Add in the crunchiness of the almond coating and it’s a party for the taste buds.
You could serve this Tilapia with a combination of colorful vegetables, such as zucchini, squash, carrots, broccoli or cauliflower seasoned lightly with salt, pepper and butter. Add some wild rice and you’ve got a pretty tasty meal that covers a majority of the food groups.
My whole brood adores this Tilapia recipe and since it’s such a big hit here, I thought I’d share!
