There’s nothing more satisfying that the crunch of crumbed fish fillet. Quinoa provides a healthier crunch and the added lemon and herbs give a summery flavour.

Ingredients

plain flour

¼ cup(s)

egg(s)

1 medium

skim milk

1 tbs

quinoa flakes

65 g, (3/4 cup)

fresh lemon rind

2 tsp

fresh flat-leaf parsley

cup(s), and chives

olive oil

1 tbs

asparagus

2 bunch(es), halved diagonally

cherry tomato

400 g, halved

ling, raw

500 g, (4 x 125g fillets)

avocado

½ medium, chopped

balsamic vinegar

2 tsp, white

Instructions

  1. Place flour on a plate. Whisk egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Combine quinoa, rind and half the herbs on a plate. Working with 1 piece of fish at a time, coat fish in flour, then egg mixture and quinoa mixture. Place onto a plate.
  2. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook fish for 2–3 minutes each side or until golden and just cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave asparagus until tender. Drain. Refresh under cold water and drain. Combine asparagus, tomatoes, avocado, vinegar and remaining herbs in a large bowl. Serve fish with salad.
