Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4 (111 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.

14 Reviews for Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach


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,

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.

I tried to give this five

I tried to give this five starts but only four came out. My recommendation begins with "As good as in a restaurant," says my husband. I am Marcia Naomi Berger.


I'm normally not a big fish eater, but I have been trying to eat a bit more of it to add to a healthier diet. Tonight I made this for the first time for my husband and myself. We decided to try it using tilapia and we both thought is was very good. I really enjoyed the taste of the lemon, almonds and dill together, and loved the lemon flavor with the spinach! I held back on how much lemon I used since a lot of the reviews said that she lemon could be over powering. I wish I did use more because I thought that the lemon flavor on the fish was too subtle for my liking. Next time I will be sure to use more!
