  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 4 (6 ounce) pieces firm skinless white fish (such as cod or tilapia)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat or gluten-free panko bread crumbs (Italian seasoned is a good choice)
  • 1/4 cup raw unsalted shelled pistachios, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  1. Cook quinoa per package directions and set aside when cooked.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F and prepare a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Season fish with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, then brush 1 tablespoon nonfat Greek yogurt on each fillet.
  4. Mix panko breadcrumbs and chopped pistachios with 1 tablespoon olive oil; sprinkle over fish, pressing gently to adhere. Bake until opaque throughout, 12 to 15 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Nutritional info includes one fillet with topping and about 1/4 of the quinoa recipe.

MAKE IT GLUTEN FREE: Use gluten-free panko breadcrumbs. I used these Italian style panko breadcrumbs and found them at Kroger in the natural foods section.

MAKE IT LOW CARB: Serve w/ a side salad or roasted veggies instead of the quinoa.

MAKE IT DAIRY FREE: Use dairy free yogurt.
