Melt butter with olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat; add fish, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove fillets to a serving plate.

Add remaining 1/2 cup almonds to skillet, and cook, stirring often, 1 minute or until golden. Remove almonds with a slotted spoon, and sprinkle over fish. Served with red rice and Horseradish Sauce.

Horseradish Sauce:

1/4 Horseradish Sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
kosher salt and pepper

*Tilapia is a very versatile fish and you can always dress it up or dress it it down.  I always have some in my freezer and if I get a chance to buy fresh I always do and everyday can be a fish day. enJOY!!!
