Almond-&-Lemon-Crusted Fish with Spinach

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (156 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.

Good Fish, Meh Spinach

The fish was truly amazing! I would definitely make it again! Was not too keen on the spinach (and I like spinach). Was too lemony and if you don't eat quickly enough it starts getting cold and gross. But, I would most definitely make the fish again--the lemon and dill combination were amazing!

I totally agree about the

I totally agree about the spinach. I will also make the fish again. My guests said it was restaurant quality. I served it with rice pilaf. I will make the fish again but with either broccoli or creamed spinach.

Easy and flavorful

I really liked this recipe and loved the combination of lemon and dill. I think I'll make a little extra spinach next time. Definitely a keeper!

Easy to make, quick, simple ingredients
Tasty Fish !

This was a quick recipe and so very tasty! If you don't like lemons, you might cut down a little in either the zest or juice - but I loved it! Also, it took 12 minutes to cook through the cod, but maybe it was thicker than average. A definite keeper for my recipe file.

Easy to make, minimal ingredients
Good & good for you

The fish looked great and was moist & delicious. I did use a very large lemon & think it was a bit too much juice on the spinach. Very good regardless!

quick & easy company worthy fish dish
Unbelievably quick, and tasty too!

This was delicious and took way less than 25 minutes. Made it as written, except did the topping in the food processor to save even more time. The whole thing took 15 minutes, tops. Used fresh rock cod - it was wonderful!
