  • 2 tilapia fillets, about 3/4 lb
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ginger (powder)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, honey, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and ginger. Set aside.
  2. Season each tilapia fillet with salt and pepper.
  3. Chop the almonds if you need to. You can also do this in a food processor.
  4. Put the flour in a shallow bowl, egg whites in another, and chopped almonds in another. Dip each tilapia fillet in the flour bowl, followed by the egg white bowl and the almond bowl last.
  5. When you are ready to cook, heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the tilapia fillets and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
  6. While the tilapia is cooking, place the honey lime sauce in a small saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Boil for about 5 minutes, until it’s slightly reduced.
  7. When the fish and sauce are done cooking, drizzle the sauce over the fish and enjoy!
