I have some news for you. Like major news. Hold onto your seat belts..
I love almonds.
Phew, glad I got that off my chest. Also, I feel like I’ve made that joke before. If so, I’m sure it was equally as funny/not funny as the last time.
I feel like I spent my entire first year of blogging posting anything but almond recipes, and now I’ve posted three in a matter of two months! These Cinnamon and Sage Almonds, Buffalo Spice Almonds and now this dinner recipe. Maybe that’s not a lot, but it feels like a lot. And honestly, that’s the way it should be. If I’m The Almond Eater, I should probably be posting an almond recipe every other day at least!
As far as almond brands go, I’ve always loved Blue Diamond almonds. I love all almonds, really, but Blue Diamond is always coming up with fun and delicious flavors to keep my taste buds happy. These Honey Dijon almonds are no exception. The weird part is that I’m not a huge dijon fan, but I definitely liked it when combined with honey on top of almonds! Plus, there’s 3g of fiber and 6g of protein per serving. Woohoo!
Besides my love of almonds, I also really love simple dinners. Specifically fish of any kind. I love chicken—I do—but fish is quicker to prepare. When I’m in a hurry, I go for whatever’s quickest. This recipe in particular is crazy quick to prep. First of all, it only requires three ingredients sooooo..there’s that. Any recipe with only three ingredients is bound to be a quick one. I try not to spend more than 20 minutes on dinner during the week, and this fits that time frame perfectly! If you’re similar to me in that way, then this is for you.
For the almonds, I recommend putting them through a blender or food processor for a hot minute (no seriously, for like 5 seconds) so that the almonds get crushed into tinier pieces but not completely ground up. That way, the flavor will stay in tact and they’ll stick to the fish a bit better.
I hope you give this recipe a go!
Honey Dijon Almond Crusted Tilapia
- 4 tilapia filets
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup Blue Diamond Honey Dijon almonds
- Thaw tilapia according to instructions on the packaging.
- Once thawed, whisk an egg in a bowl and set aside.
- Place almonds in a blender or food processor and pulse for NO MORE than 5 seconds. You want the almonds to still be somewhat in tact and not completely ground up.
- Dip tilapia one by one into the egg and then into the almond mixture.
- Heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet and place tilapia on skillet, flipping each side until cooked through.
Q: How long do you spend prepping dinner during the week? Favorite Blue Diamond almond flavor?
