Recipe: Healthy Macadamia Crusted Baked Fish

Healthy Macadamia Crusted Fish Recipe - baked fish recipes, healthy, low fat, low carb, gluten free, healthy dinner recipes

A quick note from us! We're still travelling around beautiful New Zealand and whilst we cannot wait to get back home to make this recipe again, we are having so much fun! Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see what we're up to!

I love fish - but if you had have asked me if I liked fish this time last year, I would have turned my nose up. You see, as a kid I hated fish - and the only fish I'd really tried was fish fingers. 

My Mum isn't a fish fan so she never cooked it - and as she had too many bad experiences with her own parents force feeding her food she didn't like, she never pushed Katrina or I to try anything we weren't interested in. 

For years I thought fish was disgusting - until I realised I'd never really tried it... and my tastes had definitely changed since I was a kid. When I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease, my allergy specialist and gastroenterologist told me trying fish and seafood wasn't a good idea as I had so many other allergies, however, now that I'm a bit further down the track - I decided last year that I would try fish... 

And I fell in love!

These days I could eat fish every single day, twice a day without a complaint - and it's all because of delicious recipes like this one! 

This recipe is one I came up with on a whim. I'd been shooting product photos all day for a client using lots of different nuts as props and the macadamias had caught my eye. I reaaaaaaaaally wanted fish for dinner - but I'd been starring and drooling over macadamia nuts all day - so I combined the two and came up with a recipe we've been making ever since!

So let me share the recipe with you so you can make it yourself! >>

Healthy Macadamia Crusted Baked Fish Recipe 
serves 2, easily multiplied/divided 
low fat, gluten free, low carb, clean eating friendly 

2 fish fillets, fresh or frozen (we like white fish best for this recipe, however, you can use any fish you like - or even chicken breast fillets!) 
2 tsp (10g) flour 
1/4 cup (30g) natural macadamia nuts
1 1/2 tbsp (20g) gluten free bread crumbs 
2 tsp (10g) butter or margarine/dairy free spread, softened
Salt and pepper or seasonings to taste
1-2 tsp boiling water
  • Preheat oven to 200C/390F 
  • Place your fish fillets onto a baking tray, lined with baking paper and bake for 5-10 minutes, or until your fish begins to cook and turns white (frozen fish will take longer). 
  • Whilst your fish is cooking, prepare your crumb by crushing your macadamia nuts in a food processor or blender (simply pulse to crush your macadamias into small pieces)
  • Add your flour, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper.
  • Add your butter and boiling water, mixing to combine your crumb. 
  • You want the crumb to be mixed through and whilst crumbly, held together enough to press it onto your fish. 
  • Press your crumb onto your fish fillets and place your fish back into the oven, baking for 5-10 minutes or until your crumb is golden and crunchy and your fish is cooked through. 
  • Serve immediately with a salad, steamed veggies or whatever you fancy! 
Note: Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your fish fillets! 

But tell me, are you a fish fan? 
If so, what's your favourite way to enjoy fish?
If not, what's your current favourite dinner at the moment?
