Herb and Almond Crusted Baked Fish

Sharing is caring!

This is an alternative to a breaded crust fish dish, therefore keeping it gluten free, and low in carbs!  The chief taster enjoyed this and declared it light and zesty.  Instead of using lemon, I used a lemon thyme which gave the dish the zesty taste without any of the citrus.  It was easy to make too, my favourite type of dish!

I used cod for this dish, but you could use the topping mixture for any other white fish or possibly salmon too.


2 cod fillets

2 tblspn ground almond

2 tblspn lemon thyme, chopped

2 spring onions, finely chopped

1 tblspn fresh parsely, chopped

salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
  • Mix the ground almond, onions and seasoning together in a bowl.
  • Place the fish fillets in a lightly greased baking dish.
  • Place the almond and herb mixture on top of the fish, covering it evenly.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until the fish is cooked through.
  • Eat and enjoy!
