I came across this recipe over at the Calorie King web site. For only 167 calories per serve, I was hooked. You can use any type of firm white fish fillet and cashews or almonds. I've got a full plethora of nuts in my pantry at the moment. They're a good way to curb the hunger pangs in the afternoon. That's my worst time. But not too many. They're high in fat. (Listen to me! I'm no expert at all in dietary advice. It's just what I've read.)

Crunchy Cashew Coated Fish
- 4 white fish fillets
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds or cashew nuts
- 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh basil
- Combine lemon juice, oil and mustard in a jar. Shake well. Brush both sides of the fish with the mixture. (I used the Gourmet Garden tube of basil and added it to this mixture.)
- Combine nuts and basil on a large plate. Coat both sides of the fish fillets.
- Place fish in a single layer on an oiled baking dish. Cook for 10 - 15 minutes at 190°C. Serve with steamed vegetables and oven-cooked jacket potatoes, if desired.
