Day 13- Nut Crusted White Fish
  1. 4 six ounce white fish filets (cod, sole, snapper, or tilapia)
  2. 2/3 cup whole nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts)
  3. 1/2 cup brown mustard
  4. 1 teaspoon paprika
  5. 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  8. freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to taste


  1. Put your choice of nuts in a food processor and chop finely.
  2. Place chopped nuts in a shallow dish or pan and mix in paprika, chipotle chili powder, and cinnamon.
  3. Spread mustard generously on both sides and then dip each filet in the nut mixture, making sure to coat both sides thoroughly.
  4. Heat coconut oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once oil is hot, fry filet about 3-4 minutes on one side. Flip carefully and fry on other side until fish is done, another 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Serve with lime wedge.
  1. You’ll lose some of the nut crust off the fish, but that’s okay – it still tastes amazing! Just sprinkle the loose bits on top of your fish when you serve it.
