  • 3/4 cup pistachios crushed
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons fresh parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Dry off your fish with paper towels. Cut fillets into pieces, I got two pieces for each of my fillets.
  4. Mix the cherry greek yogurt, plain greek yogurt and almond extract together in a bowl. Set aside.
  5. In a large shallow bowl combine the crushed pistachios, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, white pepper, and dried parsley. Mix well. Set aside.
  6. Dunk each piece of fish into the yogurt mixture. You can use a brush if you need to coat the fish more evenly.
  7. Dredge each piece of fish in the pistachio mixture, coat evenly on all sides. Place each piece of fish on the cookie sheet, spaced about 1/2 inch to 1 inch apart. Continue until all the pieces are coated and placed on the cookie sheet.
  8. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your fish.
