Ingredients

Nutrition
  • Pecan Crusted Tilapia

  • 12 cup pecan pieces, finely chopped
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs
  • 14 cup flour
  • 12 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 12 lbs tilapia fillets
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • Seasoned Cheese Grits

  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 2 12 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 14 cup shredded italian-blend cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cooked bacon piece
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning

Directions

  1. Chop pecans (like coarse bread crumbs); combine with bread crumbs in shallow bowl. Place flour in second bowl. Whisk milk and egg together in third bowl.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of fish with seasoned salt. Dip fish in flour (coating both sides) then dip into egg mixture (allowing excess to drip off). Finally, dip into pecan mixture.
  3. Preheat large saute pan on medium 1-2 minutes.
  4. Place oil in pan, then add fish; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Serve over Seasoned Cheese Grits.
  5. Seasoned Cheese Grits: Combine grits and water in microwave-safe bowl and cover; microwave on HIGH 6 minutes or until grits begin to thicken.
  6. Stir in remaining ingredients; cover and let stand 1 minute.
