Almond-Crisp Tilapia
Serves 4

Are you ever tempted to buy those pre-coated fish fillets you see in the meat or fish case even though you know you?re paying an outrageous price for the crumbs that get weighed with the fish? I think about it, but I resist because I think I can put my own, much cheaper, crumbs on at home.

Well, guess what: these babies are gonna cost you a bundle at home, too. Almonds are $$$$. But when you want to create a really fantastic dish, sometimes you just don?t care.

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 fish evenly with salt; dredge in 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. Remove fillets to a serving plate.

Add remaining 1/2 cup almonds to skillet, and cook, stirring often, 1 minute or until golden. Remove almonds with a slotted spoon, sprinkle over fish and serve.
