Almond-Crusted Tilapia

Reminiscent of a restaurant-style fish amandine, this recipe without problems doubles to serve a small dinner party. Almonds add that kind of rich nutty flavor to tilapia that even master chefs will deem delicious. Serve with inexperienced beans and mashed red potatoes with chives.
