Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (141 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.

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,
Switch It Up

This was great, but I got rid of the spinach and used arugula instead. Check out my blog for other great ideas -

"As good as in a restaurant," says my husband.

What a treat this turned out to be! I used fresh halibut steaks; after 20 minutes or so in the oven, they were cooked perfectly. I had all ingredients or fine substitutions (organic stone ground mustard instead of Dijon; store-bought pepper in shaker instead of freshly ground). I expect to be making this again, including for special occasions.

Pros: This came out gourmet quality.
