These delightful nut crusted fish fillets were developed especially for RSC Winter 2005. They brown nicely without the addition of any oil. Hope you enjoy!

This was excellent. I didn't make it exactly as posted. I didn't soak the fish in the milk. I couldn't find and Mahi Mahi so I used orange roughy and it turned out just as well I think. I also omitted the Cardamom and Coriander because I couldn't find it at the store either. Put the fish in a fish basket and grilled it about 10 minutes on low and it turned out great. Thanks Paula for another great recipe.
I thought this fish was good. My DH is the fish lover at our house. Don't under rate the onions in this, it really added to the dish.
This was a big hit at my house. My husband had an extra helping and my son (who usually won't eat fish) ate his whole piece and pronounced it "good." This is a recipe we will want to repeat and without any recipe changes.
