Since the season of Lent is upon us, the fish sales abound! We stocked up on some "buy one get one free" fish this last week at the store. For dinner tonight, I made a honey mustard tilapia dish. It was quite delicious, so I thought I would share it here :) It also is quick and easy to prepare. I hope you enjoy it, I will definitely be using this creation again!
Honey Mustard Tilapia
8-9 tilapia fish filets, thawed
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 cup finely chopped cashews*
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking pan. Place thawed tilapia filets evenly in the pan, they will overlap some. Sprinkle with pepper. In a saucepan, melt together the butter and the honey. Stir in the mustard until well blended. Generously brush this mixture over the fish, using the entire mixture (it will be saucy!). Then sprinkle the italian seasoning on top according to liking. Evenly sprinkle the chopped cashews over the top of the fish and honey mustard sauce. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
*You can easily chop cashews in a blender, food processor, or other chopping device (I have a Pampered Chef chopper that works very well for this). Or you could place the nuts in a plastic ziploc baggie and crush the nuts using a rolling pin.
