Created by Mitzi Dulan. Serve with Almond Dipping Sauce.
20 oz. mahi mahi, thawed
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 tsp sea salt
Almond Butter Dipping Sauce (recipe below)
Almond Dipping Sauce:
1 cup almond butter
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp almond oil
1/4 cup water to thin
Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Slice the fish to make sticks about 1-in. wide and 2-in. long. In food processor or blender, pulse together sliced almonds and bread crumbs until combined; transfer mixture to a bowl. In a small bowl, beat together eggs and salt. Dip fish sticks into egg mixture, then thoroughly cover with the crumb mixture; pressing until well coated. Arrange fish sticks onto baking sheet not allowing them to touch. Bake fish sticks 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Rotate baking sheet after 8 minutes.
Note: Smaller fish sticks will cook more quickly.
Almond Dipping Sauce: In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients thoroughly adding water gradually to reach desired consistency. Serve with fish sticks.
