June Recipe Honey Mustard Tilapia with Pecan Crust


Serves 4

  • 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.
