  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds
  • 1 1/2 pound tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, for food safety, gently rub produce under cold running water


  1. Mix flour with ¼ tsp. salt and pepper. Pat fillets dry and coat in flour mixture.
  2. Heat a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat. Add almonds to skillet and cook, stirring frequently until almonds are browned, set aside. Add 2 Tbsp. butter to skillet and heat until foam subsides. Place fish skin side down and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn fish over and cook until internal temperature reaches 145°F on a food thermometer, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spatula and keep warm, loosely covered with foil.
  3. Add remaining 2 tbsp. butter, lemon juice and reserved 1/8 tsp. salt to skillet. Swirl butter until fully melted than pour sauce over fish. Top with parsley and toasted almonds.
