The nutty taste of this simple coating complements flaky fish fillets quite nicely. Complete the meal with parsley new potatoes and corn on the cob in season. Or, for a faster finish, serve with frozen French fries and mixed vegetables.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

"What a wonderful way to cook fish! I used orange roughy. My daughter is not fond of nuts, but thought this was wonderful."
