I made a pretty great dinner (I think so, at least) on Friday night and wanted to share the recipes with you. We had Almond and Parmesan Crusted Tilapia with a couple delicious side dishes (Roasted White Asparagus and Mediterranean Orzo). This meal seems pretty complicated, but it really doesn’t take much time and you’ll be able to repeat it with no issues. There’s no real theme here, just put some stuff together for a nice dinner at home.
Almond and Parmesan Crusted Tilapia
3 filets Tilapia
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup crushed Almonds
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat egg in medium sized bowl and place Tilapia filets in. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to egg wash and mix well. Combine Parmesan Cheese and crushed Almonds in separate medium sized bowl. Remove Tilapia filets, one at a time, from egg wash and place in Parmesan and Almond mixture; ensure filets are fully coated with mixture and place into baking dish. After all filets have been coated, use remaining Parmesan and Almond mixture to place on top of filets. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
This is a great way to serve fish will ensure that it is flavorful. The coating gets nice and crispy in the oven and keeps the fish moist and juicy (as long as you don’t overcook it). If you do not like Tilapia or prefer a different kind of fish, please use that. I will be experimenting with this recipe in the upcoming weeks with different kinds of fish.
