Pecan Crusted Tilapia

This came from a restaurant I’ve been enjoying since I was a child. It is, thank goodness, still going strong. Their orange rolls are legendary. This recipe was given to me by their chef. Nice guy.

Preheat oven to 400°

1. Coat tilapia in butter
2. Bread fish in mixture of 50/50 pecan meal and Panko bread crumbs. (We grind up pecans in a blender with Zatarain’s corn flour).
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until tilapia is cooked through.

For Sauce:
1. Mix broken pecan halves with brown sugar and Kahlua liqueur.
2. Heat in pan to a simmer
3. Carefully light sauce to flambé and burn off alcohol taste.

Put tilapia in warmed plate, over rice, and pour on pecan sauce.


  1. THanks for the Dm in Twitter! And double thank you for this awesome recipe! I have been looking for something fun!

    Thanks and have a terrific day!
