Here's the deal, I often by gluten free bread and this time around I decided to try Millet bread. It tasted yummy but the only bad thing was that it basically crumbled in my hands. Not good. So the last half of the loaf I decided to use the food processor and grind up the bread pieces to create Millet Meal or Millet Bread Crumbs. Very resourceful! Last night I put those crumbs to use. See my creation below!
Millet & Flax Crusted Tilapia with Balsamic Broccoli Slaw
FISH -this is enough for 3-4 fillets
1 cup grounded up millet bread
1-2 tbsp flax meal
Greek Seasoning and/or Lemon Pepper
1-2 tbsp Coconut oil
Bag of broccoli slaw mixture (store bought, eek!)
2 tbsp balsamic dressing
2tbsp sunflower seeds
1tbsp greek yogurt
sliced cherry tomatoes
course black pepper
Combine flax and meal in a bowl. Mix well. Coat fillets with coconut oil and place in millet batter.
Then season as desired. I used a Lemon pepper and Greek Seasoning. I sprinkled it over the crusted fillets with a little sea salt. Bake at 450F for 10-12 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. Its usually 10 minutes per inch of thickness for the fillets but since these are crusted, they needed a little longer.
For the slaw, I actually bought a broccoli slaw mixture from the store and added balsamic dressing, 2 tbsp sunflower seeds, 2 tbsp greek yogurt (I used our greek yogurt kefir), black pepper, and sliced cherry tomatoes. It was the perfect tangy and sweet combo!
And that did it, I was finally able to cook and unwind. Now its back to the nitty gritty and full weekend of work and training. I think I am the only that will be happy when MONDAY comes back around. Plus on Tuesday, I get to welcome another nephew into the world. YAY for being an Aunt again and again and again. LOVE IT!
Cheers and Hope you guys have an AWESOME weekend!
