Almond Crusted Tilapia Recipe @pinch

Even those of you not too keen on fish may just love this tilapia one! It can be prepared for a quick family meal. The almond crust fries up perfectly and holds in the tender, flaky fish. The savoriness in the seasoning mixed with the almost sweet almonds is a lovely combination of flavors. Serve with a side salad or a veggie and you have a meal the whole family will love. This recipe calls for almonds. However, I have used pecans and actually like the taste better.
