Captain's Choice Tilapia

1 cup sour cream, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon ground thyme, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs, 1/4 cup Florida pecans, finely chopped, 1 1/2 pounds Florida tilapia fillets, cut in serving-sized portions

Combine first 6 ingredients and mix well. In another dish combine bread crumbs and nuts. Dip fish pieces in sour cream mixture, then coat evenly with the bread crumb and nut mixture. Place fish in a circular fashion in a round baking dish with the thickest part to the outside. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Check to see if fish is cooking evenly; make adjustments as necessary. Microwave for an additional one minute or until the fish flakes easily. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Serves 4
