Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In the food processor, grind pecans until they resemble coarse meal. In a shallow dish combine ground pecans, panko, garlic powder, paprika, salt, thyme, oregano, cayenne pepper, and black pepper.

  • In a second shallow dish, place flour. In a third shallow dish, beat together eggs and water.

  • Pat tilapia fillets dry and dredge them in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Dip fillets in the egg mixture and then dredge in the pecan and bread crumbs mixture, pressing the coating onto the fillets.

  • In a large nonstick skillet heat the butter and oil over medium heat. Place two filets in skillet and cook 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch of thickness or until flesh is opaque and flaky, turning once halfway through cooking time.

  • Repeat with remaining filets. Serve with lemon wedges.
