Submitted by Barbara Day, M.S., R.D.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup slivered almonds, finely chopped (use food processor, it’s easier)
  • ¼ cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup egg whites, beaten or 1 large egg, beaten with 1 tbsp water
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 ½ pounds salmon (6 fillets)

Directions

My favorite seafood is salmon. It’s high in protein, low in fat but high in omega-3 fatty acids. You can bake this dish or put it on the grill. You can use almonds or pecans or walnuts to make the crust.

Nutrition Information Per Serving:  326 calories, 29 grams protein, 16 grams of fat, 16 grams of CHO, 3 grams of fiber, 275  mg sodium.

 

 Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the almonds, bread crumbs, brown sugar, Old Bay seasoning, and salt in a shallow pan. Place beaten egg (or egg whites) and water in another pan and the flour in another shallow pan or plate. Season fish with additional salt and pepper (optional). Bread each fish fillet by coating both sides with flour, then dip in egg mixture then coat evenly with nut mixture. Place each fillet on the baking sheet and bake until golden brown about 15 minutes.
