“My husband came up with this creation for Easter dinner, as Tilapia is indigenous to the sea of Galilee. It remains the best fish I have ever put in my mouth, absolutely beyond restaurant quality.”

Original recipe yields 8 tilapia fillets

Directions

  1. Beat the eggs with the lemon pepper and garlic pepper until blended; set aside. Stir together ground almonds with 1 cup of Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish until combined; set aside. Dust the tilapia fillets with flour, and shake off excess. Dip the tilapia in egg, then press into the almond mixture.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook tilapia in melted butter until golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium, and season fillets with salt if desired. Sprinkle the tilapia with the remaining Parmesan cheese, cover, and continue cooking until the Parmesan cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the tilapia to a serving dish, and garnish with parsley springs and lemon wedges to serve.

I've now made this a few times, I did add some lemon pepper to the dusting flour and use eggbeaters for the egg... this is perfect everytime, I've also used orange roughy with this also amazing. I do make a lot of the crust mixture and just put left over in the freezer for the next time. Oh, and I bake this instead of frying, I spray with pam and put in the oven at 425 or so and flip half way (time depending on how thick the fillets are) and spray again and put back in, perfect.

What a great recipe! I made this last night for my husband and he loved it! I did make just a few minor changes to this wonderful recipe! I did not add the lemon (I didn't have any on hand), and I added a salt-free garlic and herb mixture to the eggs instead of what the recipe called for. Once the tilapia was coated, I put it on a baking sheet, sprayed it with some cooking spray, and cooked it at 375 for about 30 minutes. The coating was crispy and the fish was moist. Thanks for such a fabulous recipe!

I made this last night for my bf and a friend; and I think my bf told me at least a couple times throughout dinner how good it was, and then again later on in the night how much he liked it. It is definitely better than the other tilapia recipe on the site (Broiled Parmesan Tilapia), although both are good. The almonds with the tilapia and cheese were awesome. I cooked basically according to the recipe... but also seasoned the flour rather than the egg wash. I served it with garlic mashed potatoes and peas. Also, the lemon garnish at the end should be included, it added that extra zest and accented all the flavors perfectly.
