Tilapia Croquettes

Yeah, I know. I’ve disappeared for a while. And even longer than last time. I apologize. It’s taken me a lot longer to settle into this new apartment that I thought it would. And with all this mess, I haven’t been cooking much lately. But I do try my best as I hate eating out two days in a row. Few nights ago I made tilapia croquettes, which was fun. I typically eat tilapia as a filet so it was good to swap it up a bit and make it something else. I came across the recipe here and pretty much followed it straight through.




The pictures a little blurry…my bad. I guess I was really hungry that day and just wanted to get the picture taken so I can dig in.

I really was a fan of the aioli that went on top of the croquettes. Really gave it an extra degree of flavor. Adding this recipe to my rotation of foods. Yum.

Almond Flour Crusted Tilapia

I came across a similar recipe here a while back and ever since its been in the back of my mind.

I did modify the recipe a little bit. I didn’t measure out anything exactly this time (sorry), my heads a little out of it from this fever/sore throat I’ve come down with. First, in a bowl whisk an egg, which the tilapia filet will be dipped in. Then, in a separate bowl, cover the tilapia in the flour mixture consisting of salt, pepper, almond meal/flour, and some garlic powder. Put it on a skillet with coconut oil and let it cook 4-5 minutes on each side or so. Garnished with some basil and squeezed some lemon juice for added flavor.

As for the side, I roasted some asparagus and brussel sprouts. So simple, yet SO good – drizzle some coconut oil, salt, and pepper on both the asparagus and brussel sprouts. Let it bake for 15 minutes or so (asparagus) and 30ish minutes for the brussel sprouts.
