Ingredients

  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 24 tablespoons coconut oil, add more to the pan as needed
  • 1/2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning, McCormicks is a good one
  • 1 lemon, leave one half for squeezing and slice the other half into a garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl or plate, combine the almond flour, coconut, sea salt, and garlic powder.
  2. Press the tilapia fillets into the almond meal. Do this a couple times until the fish is well coated.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the fish to the oil and cook for about 3 minutes until golden brown on the bottom side. Before you flip, sprinkle the uncooked side with lemon pepper and squeeze a bit of lemon juice onto the fillet.
  5. Once you flip, sprinkle the cooked side with the lemon pepper seasoning.
  6. When you remove from pan, immediately put a lemon garnish on top, allowing the heat to bring the flavors down into the fish.
