SAGE & PECAN CRUSTED TILAPIA

This nutty, savory, and satisfying tilapia is very mild in flavor, and takes on the bold flavors of sage and pecans in this dish.


SAGE & PECAN CRUSTED TILAPIA

INGREDIENTS

4Sea Best® Tilapia fillets
1cup roughly chopped pecans or 1/4 cup ground flax meal
1/2teaspoon salt
1tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
1tablespoon olive oil

DIRECTIONS

  • Using a food processor or large knife, chop 1/2 cup of the pecans until very finely chopped.
  • Combine the finely chopped pecans, flax meal, salt, and sage in a large, shallow dish.
  • Press the tilapia filets into the pecan mixture to coat.
  • Heat half of the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add two of the tilapia filets. Don't worry if the pecans don't stick - just push any larger pieces under the tilapia and press down firmly; they'll bind to the tilapia better as it cooks.
  • Cook the tilapia for 3-4 minutes on each side, until the pecan mixture is fragrant and the fish flakes easily with a fork. Repeat this process with the remaining olive oil and two tilapia fillets.
  • Once all the tilapia is cooked, add the remaining 1/2 cup of roughly chopped pecans to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant. Sprinkle the toasted pecans on top of the tilapia and serve with quinoa and roasted veggies.
