Last night for dinner I tried a new recipe, and boy am I glad that I did. I picked up some Tilapia from Kroger and it was the individually wrapped ones. They were really easy to use. I found this recipe a couple of months ago from "What's for Dinner?" and have been wanting to try it, but have been quite busy and kept forgetting to buy the fish. So when I finally bought I now wish I had picked up the fish earlier because this dish is probably one of my favorites. It had a great combination of flavors and I especially like the breading on this. The pecans and buttermilk really add a great taste. The other great thing is that the Tilapia is a very mild tasting fish and you can't even tell it is fish. But if you don't like fish, try this breading with Chicken, I think it would be just as good.
Prep: 5 min. Cook: 6-10 min.
1/2 C dry breadcrumbs
2 T. finely chopped pecans
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 C low-fat buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
3 T. all-purpose flour
4 (6 oz) tilapia or red snapper fillets
1 T vegetable oil, divided4 lemon wedges
- Combine Bread Crumbs, Pecans, Salt, Garlic Powder, and Pepper in a shallow dish.
- Mix together Buttermilk and Hot Sauce in a separate small bowl.
- In another shallow dish add the flour.
- Coat each Fillet with flour, then dip in buttermilk mix, and then coat with the bread crumb mixture.
- Heat Oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the fillets in the oil and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
- Serve with Lemon Wedges.
