June Recipe Honey Mustard Tilapia with Pecan Crust
- 4 filets tilapia
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare a baking sheet by lightly greasing it, then set aside.
In a small bowl combine the honey, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place the chopped pecans on a plate. Dip or spread the honey mustard mixture on one side of each tilapia filet, then gently press into the pecans so that they stick and create a uniform coating. Arrange the fish filets pecan side up.
Bake uncovered for about 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and the pecans are lightly toasted.
Note: The chopped pecans should be about the size of a peppercorn or slightly larger. The size is important so that the pieces can adhere to the fish without falling off.
