Almond Crumbed Cod

We love fish in this house.  We don't eat it as often as I would like to, mostly because of the expense, and partially because I am not fond of mystery fish.  I like to know what I am eating and although there are cheap options at the shops, they are all covered in batter or fried, or the type of fish used is not exactly spelt out on the package.   I confess . . .  I don't like fish that tastes . . .  well . . .  fishy!

I know that may sound a bit strange . . .  but hear me out.  You are probably saying, isn't fish supposed to taste like fish"   Well, yes . . .  it is.   I just am not fond of STRONG flavoured fish.  Like Boston Blue,  or mackeral, etc.


I do like mild flavoured white fish however  . . .  and you could use any of them in this recipe.  Cod, Haddock, Sole . . . all would be very good.  I have used Cod here because I happened to have some lovely cod available.

Again, this is a recipe developed in my quest to eat healthier and Diabetic friendlier.   There are some bread crumbs on the fish, but they are fresh bread crumbs made from a seeded malt whole wheat loaf.  The crumbs are mixed with some herbs and seasoning.  1 1/3 cups, which comes from approximately 1 1/2 slices of bread, divided amongst a pound of fish, so not too much breading all told.

The fish is dipped into a mix of semi skimmed milk and beaten egg before rolling it in the crumb mixture.  This helps the crumbs to adhere to the fish.   So you have some extra fibre and flavour added to your fish.

This next step is what really takes this over the top from pretty good into delicious!  I mixed a bit of butter (not much) with some water and fresh lemon juice and I drizzled this mix over the fish.  Oh wow.  What a wonderful addition this was.   Some flaked almonds were sprinkled over top prior to baking.  These added another depth of flavour and some additional crunch.

Finally just before serving, I sprinkled some chopped spring onion on top which added a bit of zest and zing, not to mention colour.  Don't they look appealing"""  This dish was a most delicious part of what I considered to be a very healthy plate.  There isn't anyone that could complain about that I don't think.
