Did You Say Pretzel-Crusted Fish? Yes, Please.

This hearty Pretzel-Crusted Fish with Green Beans and Horseradish Sauce has won the hearts of many, which is why it came back this month as a Popular recipe. The tilapia is coated in crushed Pretzel Crisps, then seared until golden brown and perfectly flaky. Lemony sautéed green beans and parsley-laced horseradish sauce make the ideal accompaniments. Try it yourself, and let us know what you think!

RECIPE TIPS:
– Crushing the Pretzel Crisps as finely as possible will help them adhere to the fish.
– Your fish is finished cooking when a thin knife inserted meets no resistance.

INGREDIENTS:
1 lemon, divided
2 cloves garlic
⅛ ounce parsley, divided
3 scallions
10 ounces green beans
10 ounces tilapia
½ cup flour
1 ½ cups Pretzel Crisps
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ tablespoon horseradish

YOU’LL NEED
5 teaspoons olive oil
1 egg

Method

01
Prepare Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Halve lemon. Mince garlic. Rinse remaining produce. Finely chop parsley leaves, discarding stems. Trim scallions, discarding roots, and cut on a diagonal into ¼-inch slices. Trim and discard ends of green beans. Pat tilapia dry with paper towel.

02
Sauté Green Beans:

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add scallions and green beans and sauté, stirring, until green beans are bright green and tender, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and half of parsley and sauté, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in juice of ½ lemon. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Transfer to 2 serving plates and set aside.

03
Coat Fish:

Place flour on a large plate. Season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. In a large shallow bowl, beat 1 egg. Season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Using a large pan or other heavy object, crush Pretzel Crisps in their bag (see Recipe Tip). Place on a separate large plate. Dredge tilapia in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, allowing excess to drip off. Dredge in crushed Pretzel Crisps, pressing to adhere.

Sear Fish:

Wipe pan from green beans clean and add butter and 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat. When butter is foamy, add tilapia in a single layer and sear until golden on bottom, 2-3 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to pan, flip fish, and cook until golden on both sides, 2-3 minutes more. Place on a baking sheet and roast in oven until fish is cooked through and opaque, 8-10 minutes (see Recipe Tip). Transfer fishto serving plates with green beans.
