1/3 cup chopped toasted cashews
4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons Italian seasoned bread crumbs (panko style preferred)
1/2 tsp crushed fresh garlic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
 4 white fish filet's ( halibut, cod, haddock)
2 tablespoon soy sauce mixed with
2 teaspoons olive oil or sesame oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or baking pan and spray with cooking spray.



Place the cashews, in the food processor and process until coarsely ground.  In a bowl add the nuts stir the cheese, oil, juice and garlic, garlic powder, cayenne and pepper.
Place the fish on the prepared 2 inch deep pan lined with parchment paper  and divide the nut mixture over the tops pressing into each fillet to make sure it adheres, sprinkle with bread crumbs last. Pour soy sauce, olive oil around the fish not touch the topping and  Bake until the fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork. Four pieces at approximately 1/4 inch thickness took 11 minutes.

This looks like such a wonderful recipe. The sort of thing you can make for an impromptu dinner with friends or even for a mid-week meal. Love the versatility and rather intrigued by the addition of soy sauce!

This looks very good, but I'm curious about the soy sauce, which is a strong taste. I'm going to try it as written.
Thank You.
