  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a wire rack large enough to hold fillets in a single layer. Place the rack on a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Whisk together yogurt, egg white and mustard in a medium bowl until creamy. Combine the breadcrumbs, almonds, oregano, mint, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Dip each piece of fish in the crumb mixture, then in the yogurt mixture, and once again in the crumb mixture. Set on the prepared rack; they should not touch. Bake until lightly browned on the outside and opaque in the center, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot with lemon wedges.

Delicious, Nutty, Satisfying 0 of 0 people found this helpful This is one of my favorite fish dishes! I make it with Tilapia because I'm not a fan of many other kinds of fish. It works just as well. I also save a little bit of the creamy coat (mustard and yogurt) to keep it moist.
