Peanut Coated Tilapia Nuggets

Jason doesn't really like fish, and I don't either, but fish is full of omega-3 fatty acids which are good for us. Hence, by disguising fish as nuggets, maybe we'll learn to eat some fish, and diversify our diet a little.


1 pound tilapia fillet (cut into nugget sized pieces)
2/3 cup roasted peanuts
1 cup crushed corn tortilla chips
1 egg
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground black pepper


Finely chop the roasted peanuts and add to the crushed corn tortilla chips. To this mixture, add salt, sugar and ground black pepper. Crack egg into a bowl and whisk. Dry all tilapia nuggets with a paper towel.

Set up five stations for the coating/breading process - Station 1: uncoated tilapia nuggets Station 2: flour Station 3: eggwash Station 4: peanut/tortilla chips mixture Station 5: baking pan - then dip each piece of tilapia into the flour, eggwash and peanut/tortilla chips mixture. Bake at 400F for 15min.
