Peanut Crusted Oven Fried FishCooking time: 10 minutesPrint recipe
Serves: Makes 4 servings

This oven method is healthier and easier than frying fish. Serve with a side of your favourite vegetables, steamed green beans or peas, and cooked rice for a well-balanced meal.


¼ cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour

½ tsp (2 mL) salt

½ tsp (2 mL) freshly ground black pepper

¾ tsp (4 mL) freshly grated nutmeg

1 egg

1 tbsp (15 mL) water

1 cup (250 mL) salted peanuts, chopped

1 cup (250 mL) fresh white bread crumbs

1 lb (500 g) skinless boneless firm white fish fillet (halibut, cod or haddock), cut into 4 equal pieces


Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). On a plate, combine flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg. In a shallow bowl, beat egg with water. In a shallow baking dish, combine peanuts and bread crumbs.

Dip fish in flour mixture, then egg mixture, then peanut mixture. Place fish on a baking sheet.

Bake in centre of oven for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or until golden on outside and fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork.
