Crispy Almond Baked Fish

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lille

Adapted from Johanna Burkhard's 400 Best Comfort Food Recipes (one of my all-time favourite cookbooks). This is a very versatile recipe. You can use whatever fish fillets you choose - halibut and tilapia have worked well. You can also vary the seasonings.

Very, Very good. I had almond flour and used that instead of pulsing the almonds into the flour. I did use a sprinkle of Old Bay simply because I think all fish benefits from Old Bay. I also brushed my fish lightly with mayo instead of using the melted butter/olive oil. We loved it and even my picky 10 year old asked for seconds! Thanks.

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a food processor, combine bread crumbs, almonds, garlic, herbs and zest. Pulse until almonds are finely chopped.
  3. Combine melted butter and olive oil in a small bowl.
  4. Wrap fish in paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Arrange fish fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter and olive oil mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle crumb mixture over fish and pat lightly. Drizzle remaining butter/oil over fish fillets.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until flakes flakes with a fork.
  6. Serve with lemon wedges if desired.
