Tilapia Fillets with Mustard-Pecan Topping

User Rating 4 Star Rating (6 Reviews)


Tilapia Fillets with Mustard-Pecan Topping
Mild and tasty tilapia is flavored with a Dijon mustard topping. The chopped pecans give the dish a nice crunch. To cut fat and calories even more, use herbs in place of the pecans or use a reduced fat mayonnaise.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 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.

Have made this many times. I buy the bulk frozen tilapia at the store. I pull the fish from the freezer, top it & bake it. Since it's frozen, I bake it 45 minutes. The family loves it, even my 2 picky 20-something kids.
