Almond Crusted Tilapia
Note: If you don't have a skillet large enough to hold all the fillets comfortably, we recommend cooking them in batches. You can substitute catfish, flounder, or orange roughy for tilapia.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
24 oz cooked tilapia, fillets
1/2 tsp table salt
3 tsp butter
