Dijon-Crusted Tilapia

Do you hear complaints that fish tastes too “fishy?” 

You’ll love this mildly flavored recipe! Not being a huge fish or sea-food lover, I was amazed with this recipe. 

It’s so quick, very tasty and surprising with just a couple of simple ingredients.

Dijon-Crusted Tilapia


½ c. finely chopped pecans
4 t. Dijon mustard
4 tilapia or other firm white fish fillets
2 tablespoons oil


Toast pecans in dry skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, being careful not to burn them. 
This will take only a few minutes. 
Remove from heat and transfer to plate.
Place oil in skillet over medium high heat.
Spread mustard over one side of each fillet. 
Dredge each, mustard side down, in pecans.
Place fillets, mustard and pecan side up, in skillet. 
Cook about 4 minutes per side,  until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Serve immediately.
