Nutty Oven-Fried Fish

Nutty Oven-Fried Fish

  • 1/3 c. seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/3 c. almonds, crushed
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 4 fish fillets
  • 1 lemon, cut in quarters
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a blender or food processor, process together the bread crumbs and almonds till fine. Pour onto a dinner plate.

Pour the buttermilk into a bowl and dip in the fish fillets, one at a time. Then press the fish into the bread-crumb mixture.

Place the coated fish in a lightly greased baking pan. Cook fish for about 10 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. Serve with a lemon wedge.

My Notes:
I did not use buttermilk, and the breadcrumb mixture still stayed on quite well with just 2% milk. It was rather bland on taste, though, so I added the following:

2 Tbs. light mayonnaise
2 ts. dried dill
dash of garlic salt

I mixed this together, and we each spread about a Tbs each onto our fish and it was delicious!
