Many breaded recipes contain hidden ingredients that are not healthy and loaded with harmful saturated fats. This crusted haddock contains both hemp and almonds, which are excellent sources of protein and healthy beneficial fats. Be sure to choose wild fish to ensure the best quality and avoid pollutants.
2 large fillets of wild haddock
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, grated
½ cup unsalted almonds, crushed
3 Tbsp almond meal flour
2 Tbsp hemp hearts
3 Tbsp dry oregano
½ tsp salt
Fresh cracked pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Juice from 2 limes
Clean the haddock fillets and pat dry.
In a mixing bowl, combine the almond meal, oregano, hemp hearts, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and crushed almonds. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, grated garlic and lime.
Place each fillet into the wet mixture and allow the juice to soak into the fish.
Take one wet fillet at a time and dip into the dry mixture being sure each is coated well.
Lay the fillets onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 400°F.
Remove from oven and serve alongside your favourite salad or side dish.
