1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 tbls fresh dill
~1 tbls olive oil
2 pieces of cod, halibut or other white fish
Freshly ground pepper
1 tsp pink salt
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Optional: pomegranate seeds
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Rough chops the almonds and dill. Zest the lemon. Mix with the lemon zest, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few turns of fresh ground black pepper in a small bowl.
Spritz a little olive oil on a baking dish. Add the fish to the sheet. Spread 1 teaspoon mustard across the top of each fish. Divide the nut mixture among the portions, pressing it in slightly.
Bake the fish until opaque and flaky, roughly 10 minutes bit it will depend on the thickness of your fish.
Serve the fish with a side of our Garlic Lemon Sautéed Spinach.
Notes: Get creative with the herbs and nuts. Try basil or oregano with parsley. Substitute seeds, like pepita’s, for the almonds.
