Ingredients:

50g almond meal

20g parmesan, grated

10g lemon zest, grated

10g flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

1 pinch black pepper

1 extra-large egg, beaten

80g avocado, cut into chips

90g zucchini, cut into chips

125g firm white fish

60mL extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to spray ‘chips’

1 lemon wedge, to serve

35g mixed salad leaves, to serve

1 pinch sea salt, to serve

 

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 220°
  • First the crumb mixture. Combine ½ cup of almond meal, parmesan, lemon zest, parsley, and black pepper in a bowl. Mix together and set aside.
  • Coat your avocado (approx. ½ medium fruit), zucchini (approx. 1 small fruit) and fish one piece at a time by dipping first into the egg, and then into the crumb mixture.
  • Spray the avocado and zucchini chips with oil, transfer to a baking paper-lined tray, and roast for 20-25 minutes or until crisp, turning them halfway through cooking.
  • While they’re cooking, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the fish for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Set aside to rest.
  • Serve the fish alongside ‘chips’ and a cup of salad greens, with a lemon wedge.
