Almond Crusted Fish – Healthy Option
Almond crusted fish is a nutty, delicious way to jazz up white fish and give it a nutty, tasty, surprise. This is a perfect Shabbat or company dish.
The Backstory: With all the delicious and savory ways there are to prepare white fish, it’s a shame that it often gets such a bad rap as bland and boring. Not true! My recipe for Almond Crusted Fish is about as far as you can get from this description. I’ve created a marinade that’s full of zesty flavors and herbs and then I coat the fish in a crispy bread crumb and almond mixture (are you hungry yet?) and bake it until it is golden brown, crunchy, and flakes with the touch of a fork. Where’s your boring white fish now? More of the Backstory after the recipe…
