Description

A simple fish recipe that is perfect served with wild rice or steamed vegetables. The fish is mild, and usually pleases most people who are hesitant to try it. This recipe is a snap to scale up or down.

Ingredients

  • 4 pieces Tilapia, Boneless
  • 1 stick Salted Butter, Melted
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • ¼ cups Breadcrumbs
  • ½ cups Cashews, Crushed

Preparation

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (for easy clean-up later.)

Evenly space Tilapia fillets on the sheet. Pour the melted butter over the fish, then add salt and pepper to taste. (You shouldn’t need very much salt at all, between the cashews and the butter, it’s pretty well covered.)

Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and crushed cashews over the fish fillets to create a nice, even crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then switch your oven to the low broil setting for 2-3 minutes to finish the fillets off. The crust should be a dark golden brown and the fish should flake easily with a fork when it is done.

Optionally, spoon the butter and cashews remaining in the pan over the fish. Serve with rice or steamed vegetables for a simple, light meal.

I liked this fish a lot. I think the addition of som elime zest would give it an additional kick. I would also like to try pplachno’s idea of pecans since I too am in Texas !

This was really, really good fish! Since I’m from Texas, I HAD to use finely chopped pecans instead of cashews. I cooked it about twice as long because my filets were kind of big. Everyone liked this, even the non-fish eaters. I served it on a bed of brown rice, and the buttery pecan topping was great with the rice. Broiling at the end made it really browned and crunchy.
