Almond Crusted Tilapia (for the Candida Diet)

Tilapia, no skin, thawed if frozen
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Lime zested
Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour
3 Eggs, beaten
Sliced Almonds
Ground Flaxseed
1 teaspoon Tumeric
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
Fresh Cracked Pepper
Bowl #1: Lime Zest
Bowl #2: Flour
Bowl #3: Eggs, beaten
Bowl #4: Finely chopped almonds, oats, flaxseed and all other spices.

Keep fish cold until ready to cook. In small skillet, put just enough EVOO to cover the bottom of the pan, heat over medium to medium-high. For Bowl #4 use a food processor (I use the Magic Bullet) and pulse the almonds and oats, separately, until finely chopped. Combine all ingredients for bowl #4 so that you get the consistency of bread crumbs. Pat fish dry and coat in bowl #1, then #2, then #3, then #4. Place fish in hot oil and fry about 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.

Tips: To make preparation easier you can omit bowl #4, combine bowls #1 & #4 into a ziploc bag. Dip the fish in the egg mixture and then roll in the ziploc bag.
