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.
Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach
From EatingWell: January/February 2011
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.
16 Reviews for Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach
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!
I really enjoyed this recipe, though my guy thought the lemon was over-powering. Next time I will cut back on the lemon zest. I used kale instead of spinach and added some chilli flakes to the greens. It was delicious served over some quinoa. I am eating the leftovers for lunch right now.
My kids are learning to eat fish. The dill and lemon were too overpowering for them. I will back off on those ingredients if I make this one again.
I consider myself a great cook. I always receive compliments on my cooking and love to try new things. I followed this recipe to the 'T' and it was disgusting. I like fish, just not prepared this way. The spinach was too lemony, and the dill with almond wasn't a great mixture for me. I couldn't taste the fish at all, just crunchy almonds, too much dill and way too much lemon. I won't make this again.
