You know you should be eating more fish, right? This recipe is mild, easy, and delicious. I used flounder but you can use any thin fish fillets. I’ve always loved fish coated with nuts, but it’s a little labor intensive and sometimes the coating doesn’t stick. This recipe eliminates those issues by simply sprinkling the nuts on the fish before serving. Simple fix. I don’t know why I never thought of it.
I mentioned this recipe a couple posts ago when I made magically delicious orange and avocado salad. The recipe came off the back of a package of frozen flounder. It was so good, I bought the exact same fish again and decided to share the recipe. I said it before, but I want to mention again that it’s good to check out the sustainability and health rating of fish before buying. The Environmental Defense Fund has a great resource for checking up on fish.
