Baked Mac Nut Crusted Cod

This is a super easy recipe if your looking for a quick way to spruce up some boring old fish. Debone your fillet of cod, and portion in to small 4 oz(or so) pieces. Just pulse some raw macadamias(about 3 cups) until a fine meal forms(I used the dry attachment on the vitamix) and add to about two cups of Italian seasoned breadcrumbs or Panko. Whip up a couple of eggs(duck in my case) with a splash of whole milk. Season breadcrumbs as you like. Line a pan with parchment paper and set your breading station up. Start with eggs, coat the portion well, and move into a large bowl. Spoon and press the macadamia bread crumbs, on both sides. If you wish you may  double coat the fish. Set on baking pan a few inches apart and put into 400 degree oven and bake for 25 minutes. Watch closely so the topping doesn’t burn. You may turn the oven down but not less than 350 degrees.  Turn the pan once so as to brown evenly. I served this with an Asian slaw salad and buttered carrots and snap peas.

You will need:

  • One serving each of cod per person,  about 4-5 ounces each
  • 3 cups macadamias
  • 2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs, or Panko
  • 2 eggs
  • A dash of milk
  • Your favorite seasoning for fish
