Ingredients

  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Cup shelled pistachios, finely processed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Season the tilapia fillets with salt and pepper to taste, and then evenly squeeze the lemon's juice over all of them. Place the flour, eggs, and pistachios in 3 separate bowls or shallow dishes. First dredge each fillet in the flour, then the eggs, and then the pistachios. 

Heat the canola oil and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tilapia fillets to the pan and cook until fork tender, about 2-3 minutes per side. 

Pistachio Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Pistachio Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
