3-4 Tilapia Fillets (or any white fish) cut into strips or nuggets - fresh

1 1/2 cups of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour

1 Egg or 1 cup Egg Substitute

1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Onion Powder or Onion Flakes (I used flakes)

1 tsp Kosher Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

2-4 Tbsp Olive Oil or Butter


1. In one bowl, scramble egg with 1 tablespoon of water to create an egg wash.

2. In a second bowl, combine flour with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. (Remember, use more or less of any recommended seasonings, or use other seasonings instead to give it the flavor you desire.)

3. Heat a large pan over medium high heat with 2 tablespoons of oil or butter

4. While the pan is heating, dip each tilapia nugget in egg wash, then roll in flour mixture until well coated.

5. Place flour-coated nugget, one at a time, in pan. Do not crowd (work in batches)

6. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes until lightly browned.

7. Remove nuggets from heat and place on a paper towel.

8. Serve over a bed of green beans or rice or whatever your heart desires!

Optional: Squeeze lemon juice over fish for extra tangy flavor; serve with dipping sauce of choice (marinara, ketchup, lemon butter mix, get creative!)
