  • Place the beaten eggs in a shallow dish. Mix the almonds, coconut, sesame seeds, brown sugar, and nutmeg together in a mixing bowl. Stir the pineapple and onion together in a separate bowl. Dip each tilapia fillet into the beaten egg and then press into the almond mixture. Place the coated tilapia into the prepared dish. Spread the pineapple mixture over the coated fillets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 40 minutes.

My husband enjoyed this one. I didn't have coconut and he doesn't like pineapple so we toasted the almonds with some sugar and used mandarin oranges instead. It turned out great! Read More

this is a great idea and the crust is fantastic. I want to try this again and make a sauce out of pineapple to drizzle over the fish or to dip in. and then I think it will be a hit! Read More

This was okay it was rather soggy tasting and I wasn't super crazy about it. I think it could be greatly enhanced by using some panko bread crumbs removing the eggs all together and using a drizzle of butter and then adding the topping mixture minus the nutmeg. Read More

Maybe this would be a better recipe with a different fish. Didn't care for the nutmeg brown sugar coconut and flour-especially with the pineapple=too sweet. Kind of like a thin cake batter coating despite making as light a coating as possible. Suggest trying with shrimp instead. and deep-frying. Read More

I just made this for tonight's dinner and it is wonderful. Since I had no tilapia I used pollack fillets and the coating kept the fish moist. I did not make the sauce since we are counting our carbs but next time I will. I think it would be entirely appropriate for this tasty dish. Read More
