  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a large baking dish.
  2. 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.

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!

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!

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...
