DIFFERENT, but definitely DELICIOUS!  Tilapia is an excellent fish. It’s got a great texture & flavor, however, it can get kind of boring.  So here’s an awesome recipe that yours truly created from just an idea 🙂

Oh and don’t worry… it’s super easy.

Ingredients: (serves 2)

-4 pieces of tilapia

-About 15 macadamia nuts (you don’t want to go overboard … macadamia nuts are not the kind of nut you want to eat too many of if you’re trying to watch calories)

-Olive oil

-Salt & pepper

-Drop of butter

Directions:

Thoroughly wash and dry the tilapia.  Lightly coat with olive oil, salt, & pepper.

Finely chop the macadamia nuts.  They are a very buttery nut so they are pretty easy to chop up.

Next, dip one side of the the tilapia into the chopped nuts one at a time.  Heat up some olive oil and a drop of butter in a pan, then place the 4 filets in the pan gently.  Be careful- tilapia is a very delicate fish.

Let cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Again, be gentle when flipping… use a spatula.

Delizioso!
