Pecan Crusted Tilapia

Cracker Barrel had a dish on their menu, Pecan Crusted Trout, that I once ordered and loved. This recipe is pretty close to that and very simple to make.

Pecan Crusted Tilapia

1 lb. tilapia filets (defrosted, if frozen)
olive oil
Old Bay spice, any type (I used garlic and herb)
ground pecans (keep these in the freezer to retain freshness)

Lay out the fish filets in a glass baking dish. Drizzle a little olive oil over the filets and use your fingers to spread evenly to coat fish. Season with Old Bay spice. Cover with a thin layer of ground pecans. Cover dish with Saran Wrap, leaving one corner open to vent. Microwave for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Adjust time if needed for your microwave oven. Ours has an automatic button labeled for fish which works great.
