Pecan Crusted Tilapia

Ingredients:
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
3 tablespoons flour
4 tilapia fillets
2 tablespoon oil, divided
Lemon wedge

Directions:
Combine breadcrumbs, pecans, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in a shallow dish.
Combine buttermilk and hot sauce in a medium bowl.
Place flour in a third dish.
Dredge 1 fillet in flour; dip into buttermilk mixture, then into breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with remaining fillets.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet (non-stick works best) over medium-high heat.
Cook 2 fillets for 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily.
Add remaining oil and cook additional 2 fillets.
Serve with lemon for squeezing.
