Pistachio Crusted Fish with Roasted Lemon

Pistachio Crusted Fish with Roasted Lemon

Pistachio Crusted Fish with Roasted Lemon

Roasting fish in the oven is a great alternative to pan-frying and a lot less hassle. In this recipe, we coat the fish in a za’atar, pistachio and lemon crust, and serve with Greek yoghurt and sumac.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Serves: 4


Heat oven to 200°C. 

Place fish on a baking paper-lined tray. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle approx. 1 tsp of za’atar over the fish and put aside.

Mix 1 tsp of za’atar, chopped pistachio nuts, olive oil, chilli, lemon juice, crushed capers, garlic and Italian parsley in a large bowl.

Divide mix into 4 and spread over top of the fish.

Place the finely sliced lemon (careful to remove any seeds) and layer 3-4 slices over the top of each fillet. Season with salt and pepper.

Place fish in oven and roast for 8-10 mins.

While the fish is cooking, discard any residual liquid off the yoghurt. Place in a serving bowl, sprinkle with sumac.

Remove fish from the oven and serve with yoghurt mix to one side.
