nutty parmesan crusted fish recipe

Everyone knows that fish is really really good for you.

Unfortunately noone in our house really likes fish that much. (actually the more we've eaten it the more it's growing on us.)

I like to add lots of flavor to take away the fishy taste.

This is by far my favorite fish dish so far.

-1/2 cup of chopped nuts (I've used walnuts, pine nuts & almonds... cashews, peanut & pistachios would be good too I'm sure.)
-1/3 cup bread crumbs
-1/3 cup parmesan
-1 tbsp. fresh chopped rosemary
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/8 tsp. pepper
-2 tbsp. olive oil
-1 1/2 pounds of fish fillets (I've used fresh Mahi Mahi, Talopia & catfish)
-2 tbsp. dijon mustard
-2 cloves minced garlic

1) preheat oven to 425
2) cut fish fillet into small portion sizes (or large if you want. I like small because you get more breading on each piece)

3) combine nuts, bread crumbs, parmesan, rosemary, salt, pepper & olive oil in a medium sized bowl 

 (rosemary- strip needles from the stem & chop up)     

4) mix dijon mustard & garlic in a small bowl & then brush on the tops & sides of the fillets. 
5) cover baking sheet with foil & spray with cooking spray. 
6) dip coated fillets in the nut mixture. Place fillets on baking sheet & then sprinkle the remaining nut mixture on top to make it even thicker. 
7) place fillets on greased foil & bake for 15 minutes 

The oldest babe loves this recipe but the younger 2 don't. I think it's the mustard...  so I always cut a few fillets in strips, dip in meted butter & nut mixture. Then fry in EVO oil.

They love it!

  1. This sounds and looks delicious!! We love fish, but I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it, so I will have to add your recipe into my collection.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the prayers!


  2. My kiddos actually love fish sticks...go figure! These sound really good- thanks so much for sharing them with Two for Tuesdays this week! =)

  3. I always forget about using nuts when breading fish. Why? They're so crunchy and good. Thank you for submitting this to Two for Tuesday.

  4. Hello, I really like your blog title. You are one truly busy woman, and it is always a delight to see one walking godly with intention and purpose.

    I too like fish, grilled being the preferred choice. I read over the ingredients in your dish and they all seem to be a good combination, yet I do not think my family would enjoy it. But I loved the photo of your daughter who looks every ounce to be enjoying it.

  5. In the past we haven't really ate much fish, but it is really growing on us and I really love this preparation. Looks delicious!!

  6. looks yummy! we aren't a big fan of fish too but this looks worth a try. thanks for the recipe! :)

  8. Hi Kasie and welcome to the two for tuesday recipe blog hop! I am now following your lovely and colorful blog! This recipe is so interesting! Nuts and fish go so well together and I am sure produce a very moist fillet! My kids are gonna love this one! Thanks again and I look forward to getting to know you better through your blog posts!

  9. I love the sound of this dish. Great idea for those of us who have a hard time eating fish.

  10. I love Mahi Mahi and Tilapia { the only two types of fish hubs will eat unless it's deep fried..hehehe } This looks FAB :)

  11. Homemade fish sticks are the best! But I've never put chopped nuts in the breading. All I have on hand is macadamia - think it'll work?

  12. And I'm your newest follower! Hope you'll be mine too! ;)

  13. I have made something similar without nuts. My husband would love this with nuts. Thanks for stopping by.
