Pecan Encrusted Tilapia

This technique works great on many different types of fish and is a great way to jazz up tilapia.


1/2 Cup Flour
1 Egg
1/2 Cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 Cup panko bread crumbs
Fresh Herbs such as oregano, thyme or parsley. Dried are fine as well.
Salt and Pepper
Zest of 1 lemon
4 fillets of Tilapia

Preheat oven to 375. Setup up a dredging station which consists of flour, egg wash, and the crust ingredients (panko, pecans, lemon zest and herbs). Salt and pepper tilapia.  Dredge only one side of fish in flour, egg wash and finally crust mixture. Place tilapia on greased sheet pan and chill in fridge for 30 minutes to help crust bind to the fish. Cook in 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until fish is flaky.
