    This does sound very flavorful! Trigger, you are very good with choosing great flavor combos. You must be like a scientist in the kitchen!

    You couldn't think of a few more words to add to the title!?!?

    Michael...this is superb!!! I love the double dip to bread the nuggets, the breading flavor combinations are just yummy, and a wonderful sauce to top everything off! High-five for the flavor artistry, and another high-five for presentation. Flagged as beautiful. A must on my Lenten fish-fry schedule that will blow those ordinary catfish filets out of the water!;0)

    This is a stellar recipe!! Once again, our taste buds prove to be on the same page. We were both thinking fish today. I may just try this tonight. I have some Bluegill fillets that would be a perfect substitute for the Tilapia.

    Great presentation and a High Five from me....;-)

    Michael my friend - wow! - I love fish - love it - and your cajun rub with that sweet-savory almond meal bread crumb breading is the ticket. Plus, I love that you're using buttermilk for your dip - and the initial flour dredge assures the breading will stick to the fish. I always do that method and it works perfectly....for so many fried foods. The Habanero BBQ sauce and Greek Yogurt serving suggestions makes it even better. Great recipe - great pics! High 5 and flags for beauty and uniqueness. Count me in. :)
