Tilapia Tots

We eat fish once or twice a week,
but we were getting burned out on the "usual."
Typically, I put some white fish in a pyrex with coconut oil
and seasoned with pepper, salt and parmesan and cooked.
It's a good recipe, I was just getting tired of it.

So, I went to my friend "google."
We tried Tilapia Tots.

They were a nice change with some homemade tartar sauce.
Little protein bites and low in carbs (if that is important to your diet.)
Not super fishy for those who are a little squeamish.

Tilapia Tots

1 lb tilapia fillets or other white fish
2 eggs 
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder 
1/4 tsp salt

Bake the fish fillets until they flake with a fork at the thickest point. 
Place fillets in a medium bowl and flake.
Let cool 5 minutes before stirring in the eggs.
Add the cheese to this mixture.
In a small bowl, combine almond meal, baking powder, lemon pepper, garlic powder and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir.
Use a scoop to place the fish mixture in mini muffin tin.
Bake for 20 minutes at 375*. 
Makes about 18 tots.
