DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F, line a baking sheet with foil and spray non-stick spray.
  • If using whole cashews, pulse in a blender or food processor until crushed.
  • Mix the cashews with the bread crumbs, set aside. Mix the milk and eggs and beat together in a medium bowl, set aside. Mix about 1 tsp each of both salt and pepper into the flour, set aside.
  • Prepare an assembly line with the three mixtures by putting flour mixture into a shallow plate, and the bread-cashew mixture in another shallow plate.
  • Work the fillets one at a time by flouring each of the fillets and shaking off the excess. Proceed to submerge the floured fillet into the eggs and then covering with the bread crumb-nut mixture; repeat with the remaining fillets.
  • Place crusted fillets on baking sheet at least an inch apart. Insert into oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Eat fresh.
