Pistachio Crusted Tilapia

I'm just going to start without apologizing for my slow blogging this last month or so. We've been very busy, well, you know, what can I say?

Tilapia is usually our weekday fish of choice. It's nice, mild, not too fishy and the flavor is perfect for us and our picky fish taste buds.

I don't remember how I stumbled upon this recipe:Pistachio-Crusted Tilapia, but it's so easy and quick for week night meal, you'll definitely add it to your repertoire, well, that is, if you like fish and pistachios :)

1 cup Shelled pistachios
1 tsp Dried oregano
1 tsp Dried thyme
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
3 tbsp Honey mustard
4 Tilapia fillets

In food processor, combine pistachios, oregano, thyme & garlic powder. Process until finely chopped & transfer to a shallow dish.

Season both sides of tilapia with salt & pepper. Brush honey mustard over both sides of tilapia, then press into pistachio mixture. Bake on greased baking pan at 375 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes.

► When I make it I usually forget to season it with salt & pepper, since you have to coat it with honey mustard and it still tastes great! Oh, and I also leave out the oregano, thyme, and garlic powder and it still rocks our world!

Dig in!
