Crispy Oven "Fried" Fish

Tasty, easy to make, and uses things you probably already have on hand! Serve with potatoes in your favorite style, coleslaw, salad... whatever you like with fish!


2 fish filets (I like to use tilapia, but cod, halibut, or any flaky, boneless white fish will do)
1/2 c. GF bread crumbs or crumbed chips/crackers/dried bread
1/2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
dill (dried or fresh)
cracked black pepper
1/4 c. buttermilk

Preheat oven (I used my toaster oven) to 450 degrees F.

Sprinkle fish filets in black pepper (unless you're not a fan of pepper... you can also sprinkle with salt if you like.

Add the dill and lemon pepper to the crumbs. Put 1/3 of the crumbs in a shallow dish wide enough to lay a filets down without it being too big to lay flat. TIP: instead of GF breadcrumbs, use whatever chips or crackers you have on hand - put them through a blender to crumb them. This also reduces the need to add any salt.

Drench fish filets in the buttermilk (in a bowl). Then transfer the filets one at a time to a shallow dish containing 1/3 of the crumbs. Scatter some crumbs on top, shaking dish back and forth gently to coat the filets in the crumbs so they're "breaded."

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with nonstick spray. Place the filets next to each other on the baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. You can also cook these the same way in a toaster oven, and can "toast" it at the end to crisp it up even more.

I serve these with tartar sauce - Trader Joe's makes a good one with jalapeno and dill mixed in and it's gluten-free, of course!

This recipe makes 2 filets - serves one if very hungry or two for a lighter meal.
