Baked Tilapia Amandine

"Most of the amandine recipes posted here are fried, but this one is baked. The fish also gets a little extra flavor from the creole seasoning. Recipe is from the Clinton High School Booster's Club, in Clinton, MS."

    Stuck to the tilapia, but I so wanted to use this method on a fresh catch of trout given to me by my son. Me, all I ever catch are a bunch of hardheads. Great dish!

    I used Cajun seasoning instead It was very tasty. I'll definately make it again

    This was delicious! I always love lemon juice on my tilapia, so this was no exception to the rule. And I think the almonds made a nice crunchy touch to the fish.

    Another great recipe Lynette. Love the flavor! Cut the recipe in half. We like a little breading on our fish, so added the creole seasoning to about a 1/4 cup of bread crumbs! Otherwise followed your instructions. Made for Pot Luck Tag!

    This is an excellent fish recipe. Loved the combination of flavors. DD liked it so much that she wants to make it for her lunch one day (I keep individual fish fillets in the freezer). Will be making this again as it makes a nice meal without a lot of fuss. Thanks for posting this breezermom. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
