Brown Butter Tilapia

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 tilapia filet or other white fish
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 lemon for garnish, optional
  • 3 Tbsp Pistachios shelled and chopped

Instructions

  • Place almond meal, salt, and pepper in a large zip top bag. Add filets. Shake to coat.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When it sizzles, reduce heat to medium-low. Shake excess flour off 2 filets and add to pan. Cook until golden brown and crisp, then turn. (Cook about 2 minutes per side.) Remove filets to a plate and repeat with remaining butter and remaining filets.
  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and cook until it begins to brown. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, and pour over fish. Sprinkle with pistachios. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.
