4 scallion flowers for garnish
1 1/2 – 2lb Tilapia fILLETS, CUT INTO SERVING PORTIONS
4 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, melted
2 cups crushed Rice Krispies cereal
6 tablespoons Sliver Palate Green peppercorn Garlic Mustard
3/4 cup half and half
To make scallion flowers, trim each scallion, leaving about 2 inches of green part. Starting at the white end, make 6 cuts through the white part to where the green part starts. Place scallions in ice water until the whites curl back to form flowers, several hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 500 degrees fahrenheit. Dip fillets in melted butter and roll in Rice Krispies. Place in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Bake until golden colour and cooked through, about 7-8 minutes depending on thickness. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together mustard and half-and-half. Heat until simmering, then transfer to a sauce dish. Arrange fish on serving platter, garnish with scallion flowers and serve. Pass sauce separately.
