Step-by-step video of how to make Pecan Crusted Tilapia.
Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 30 minutes | Total: 45 minutes
Yield: 4 servings | Serving Size: 1 tilapia fillet
4 (5-6 ounce) tilapia fillets
¼ cup buttermilk (or ¼ cup milk + ¾ teaspoon vinegar)
¼ cup pecans, finely ground in blender or food processor
¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons dried parsley
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon paprika
1 pinch cayenne
1. Preheat oven to 375⁰ F.
2. Place tilapia in a shallow dish. Pour the ¼ cup buttermilk (or substitute) over the fillets.
3. In a separate shallow dish, combine the pecans, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, thyme, paprika, and cayenne.
4. One at a time, remove fillets from the buttermilk, allowing the excess to drain off, and then dredge in the pecan mixture to coat all sides.
5. Place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and spray it with cooking spray. Place each coated fillet on the cooling rack. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the thickness of fillets, or until the topping is lightly browned and the fish is tender and flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.
• Try adding using walnuts as a substitute for pecans

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
