Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (170 votes)

Coating fish with nuts and baking it is an easy, foolproof way to cook it elegantly. And it is especially nice with a mild white fish like cod or halibut. The spinach turns a little yellowy because it’s cooked with the acidic lemon juice, but what you lose in green color is more than made up for in great flavor.

Extremely Flavorful and Delicious!

This is such a tasty way to fix any white fish! The chopped almond creates a satisfying crunch, the mustard provides a spicy undertone, and the lemon adds a real brightness. So quick and easy, but impressive enough for guests. I've never fixed the spinach part of this recipe, but the fish is fabulous!

Flavorful, quick and easy, healthy, low-fat, low calorie, impressive presentation

This was soooo good. I didn't have dill, so I used cilantro. No lemons sold where I live, so I used lime. No halibut here, so I used red snapper. Was still absolutely amazing.

Easy, Healthy, Good Presentation
Enjoyed my fish with baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli. Skipped the spinach.
Delish Fish Dish

Easy to prepare, very tasty and nic presentation. Followed the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. Will add it to my fish recipes fir future dishes.

Tasty with just the right amount of lemon. Really loved the mustard taste, right amount of kick.

The idea of this recipe was great. Next time I will steer clear of adding so much lemon and I will add a bit more spinach.

Great recipe.
Easy and Fast with a perfect result!

I made this and it was GREAT! I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and was looking for a cod recipe. I have never cooked cod before. I followed the directions and it came out really good. My 14 year old son even liked it!

easy, fast, tasty,
