Wasabi Crusted Fish

Last night I was in the mood for a spicy type of fish, not your normal spice, more of a sushi spice....so I came up with this, and it was so delicious.

You can use any kind of white fish. I used Flounder because that is what I had. I would suggest using either Cod, Halibut, or Flounder. They are all very light. I can't wait to try it on Halibut, that is my favorite fish. It might even be good on Salmon or Tuna...YUM! :)

I made this for us low carb people, so I used Parmesan for the crust. You can use Panko bread crumbs if you like, they are a Japanese bread crumb.

I served this with a Acorn Squash half, and I steamed a frozen Broccoli, snow peas, and water chestnuts medley, sprinkled with a little ground ginger and crushed black pepper.

This entire meal took about 10 minutes prep and 10 minutes cooking time. Let me know if you try this. I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!

  1. This was good stuff. It's not spicy at all, there is just the essence of wasabi but not really any of the heat. Very good.
