Baked Almond-Crusted Cod in Big Boss Oil-less Fryer

Quick dinner tonight.  Didn’t get started until 6:10pm!  Luckily, I had taken 4 Wild Caught Cod fillets out of the freezer last night.  I had a bunch of green beans, a spaghetti squash and 4 sweet potatoes waiting to join in a meal, and tonight was the night.

Almond meal has figured heavily in many recipes lately.  From cakes to cookies to my creation this evening.

So here’s how it went…

I steamed the green beans then added some garlic salt, pepper, a bit of e.v. olive oil and lemon juice.

Then I steamed the spaghetti squash, then scraped the insides into a pan, added some coconut milk, touch of salt, date sugar, cinnamon and a dash of turmeric. While that was re-heating on low, I sliced the sweet potatoes into strips, tossed them in olive oil, salt, Aleppo pepper and a dash of sumac.

The potatoes cooked in the Big Boss Fryer first… (10 minutes per batch).

Then I prepared the fillets:

Baked Almond-Crusted Cod

  • 4 Cod fillets
  • 1 Tbs. EV Olive Oil
  • 3/4 c. Almond Meal
  • 1/4 c. Rye Flour (substitute with Brown Rice flour for GF)
  • 2 Tbs. chopped organic Parsley
  • 1 Tbs. Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
  • Paprika, to taste

Rub fillets with olive oil on both sides.

Mix dry ingredients in a flat dish.

Set timer for 12 minutes (14 if fillets are  thick).  Bake at 400º.  Watch so that crust does not burn.

Squeeze lemon on top and serve with veggies and baked sweet potato fries!  Voilà! Dinner.

    1. Layla, Almond meal is ground up blanched almonds, until they are as fine as flour. It is also referred to as Almond Flour.
      Spaghetti Squash may not be available in Leb. I will send you a photo so you can see what it looks like. Bawset… Hoda

    1. You’re welcome. I love it because 1) I can have “fried” sweet potatoes, and 2) It takes half the time an oven would to cook most things. Don’t miss the Stuffed Bell Pepper recipe in the Big Boss, and of course Falafel… a family all time favorite. hugs, Hoda

  1. I own a Philips AirFryer and use it often to enjoy French Fries, Fried Plantains, Chicken Wings, Chicken Fried Steak, Homemade Sweet Potato Tater Tots. Everybody should have one!
