DIRECTIONS

  1. Spinach Drizzle: Place spinach and garlic in food processor. Combine with on/off pulses until finely chopped. Add oil and puree. Reserve.

Dip fish into flour mixture and shake off excess. Dip into egg mixture and then into nut mixture. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Cook fish for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until browned. Place fish on prepared baking sheet.
