1 lb any fish
1 tsp TJ’s Fish Sand
2 tsp water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oil
2-3 eggs
1 cup Any crushed nuts 

Season fish with TJ’s Fish Sand. Beat eggs with water and put in a bowl. Put flour and nuts in separate bowls (3 bowls total). Dry the fish filet, hold it in one hand and dip in flour. Coat on all sides. Shake off excess flour and dip in egg wash (all sides). Switch to dry hand and dip in the nut crust, using dry hand to pack crust evenly. Let filet rest refrigerated for 1 hour. Add oil to large saute pan, about 1/2 inch deep. Then pan fry over medium heat 2–3 min per side (turn with tongs). Remove from pan to baking sheet, and bake fish 400 degrees for 8–10 min.

TJ’s Tip: Use this “dry-wet-dry” method to encrust fish with all kinds of things! TJ’s Italian Herb Breading is delicious, or use cornmeal, crushed up saltine crackers, pistachios, macadamia nuts, parmesan, grated raw potatoes, coconut … go nuts! (pun intended)
