Tilapia Crusted With Almonds

I made this with concerns of getting more Calcium into my diet. Almonds have 80 mg per 1 ounce. The almonds toasted up so nice giving this dish great flavor.

Very good & very easy! I even made some and froze them. They thawed & cooked just as well as the fresh batch.

I tried this last night and it was pretty darn tasty! Since my husband and I are doing the low-carb thing, I substituted normal flour for soy flour. I really liked how the lemon soaked right into the breading. It was a delight to make and eat! The scallions were a nice way to top the dish and added to the flavors. This is a terrific dish I'll be making again :)
