1 cup sliced almonds, divided
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 (6-oz.) tilapia fillets
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Process 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor until finely chopped and combine with 1/4 cup flour in a shallow bowl.
Sprinkle the fish evenly with salt, dredge fish almond mixture.
Melt butter with olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, add fish and cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove fillets to a serving dish.
Add remaining 1/2 cup almonds to skillet and cook, stirring often, 1 minute or until golden brown. Remove almonds with a slotted spoon and sprinkle over the fish.
You can substitute catfish, flounder or orange roughy for tilapia.
