Delicious tilapia is enhanced with a tasty Dijon topping, made with mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and chopped pecans. To cut fat and calories even more, use herbs in place of the pecans or use reduced fat mayonnaise. Tilapia is packed with nutrients and it's absolutely delicious!


1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup brown mustard, such as French's Bold 'n Spicy
1 pound tilapia fillets, if frozen, thaw
1/4 cup chopped pecans, finely chopped


Lightly butter a large, shallow baking pan, such as a jelly roll pan. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, and mustard.
Using paper towels, pat fish lightly to dry. Arrange fish fillets in prepared baking dish.

Spread mayonnaise mixture over each fillet. Sprinkle each fillet with chopped pecans; press down gently.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Use 2 to 3 fillets per person, or 4 to 6 ounces. Serve with broccoli and tomato slices. Tilapia recipe makes 4 servings.

This was delicious!!!!! :T But dont do what I did....clever me thought I'll just use the Dijonnaise that hubby puts on his sandwiches everyday...well after I ate it, and brought the bottle to the computer to imput the info into fitday. I was stunned to see that it cost me 7 carbs!!!!!!! So dont do that....do what jennifer tells you to do!

I didnt use pecans, and sprinkled tarragon ontop, and eating the sliced tomatoes with the fish was just divine!

Positively a "Do Again"!
