The original recipe called for the seasonings to be blended into the bread crumbs and pecans, but I found that, like most coatings, it doesn't all stick to the fish, so I added them to the flour mixture instead...turned out great!
I also didn't have the buttermilk and substituted that with half and half mixed with a little lemon juice. Another great hack.
1/2 cup bread crumbs or Panko crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic or garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup buttermilk (low-fat is fine)
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
4 (6oz.) tilapia fillets or your favorite fish (I used founder)
1 Tbsp. oil, divided (add a little butter for a richer flavor)
