Nut-Crusted Fried Fish
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.
