Pecan Crusted Tilapia

I'm sad to say that this will be my last post--------------APRIL FOOL'S! Don't you just hate those silly April Fool's jokes? Well, this recipe is no joke. It is simple, tasty and you can substitute your favorite fish--catfish, flounder or orange roughy.

Pecan Crusted Tilapia

1/2 cup pecan halves, finely chopped (I used my food processor to chop them)
4 - 5 fresh or frozen tilapia fillets ( I used frozen)
Salt, Pepper, Garlic powder to taste
3 Tablespoons butter

Sprinkle fish fillets with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Dip fish in the finely chopped pecans. (Some did not want to stick, so I just placed the pecans on the fish.)

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until well browned and fish flakes with a fork. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley, if desired.

**I served it with lemon wedges in case someone wanted to put a squeeze of lemon on the fish. It was fantastic. My family really loved it.
