Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a wire rack large enough to hold fillets in a single layer. Place the rack on a baking sheet and set aside.

  • Whisk together yogurt, egg white and mustard in a medium bowl until creamy. Combine the breadcrumbs, almonds, oregano, mint, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.

  • Dip each piece of fish in the crumb mixture, then in the yogurt mixture, and once again in the crumb mixture. Set on the prepared rack; they should not touch. Bake until lightly browned on the outside and opaque in the center, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot with lemon wedges.

Delicious Nutty Satisfying 0 of 0 people found this helpful This is one of my favorite fish dishes! I make it with Tilapia because I'm not a fan of many other kinds of fish. It works just as well. I also save a little bit of the creamy coat (mustard and yogurt) to keep it moist. Read More

I made this with mahi mahi and wheat panko and it was such a hit. Thought the technique of the wet layer in between the two dry coatings was difficult as written. Spreading the wet on the first layer made the dry layer come sliding off. I had to finesse it all back together. Also I put the s & p directly on the fish instead of mixing it into the dry ingredients just to ensure the fish was seasoned properly. Still a very successful delicious dish. Suitable for a quick dinner or even company! Read More
