Crispy, delicious oven baked lemon parmesan crusted fish! A simple dinner to make with a side salad or your choice of sides.

The fish is coated in a lemony parmesan gluten-free crumb mixture, and baked to perfection. Crispy outside, buttery inside, and so easy to whip up!

You guys already know i’m all about the hassle-free recipes, especially during the week. We’ve been getting pretty tired of salmon as our main fish, so I couldn’t resist when I saw some buttery sole at the fish market.

I love anything crusted, so I blended my own breadcrumbs using grain free crackers that I had in my pantry. I tossed the crumbs with a little lemon zest and grated parmesan, and the combination was incredible.

The fish itself cooks in under 15 minutes, which is why I love this recipe. It so flavorful, and pairs well with just about anything.

What you’ll need to make gluten-free crusted fish:

  • White fish- I used sole in this recipe because it has a subtle, flakey texture. You can use any white fish you prefer!
  • Breadcrumbs- any crumbs (regular, whole wheat or gluten-free), or panko would work. If you have none, blend up your favorite GF crackers to make some!
  • Eggs
  • Grated parmesan- you can substitute nutritional yeast to keep this recipe dairy-free
  • Lemon zest
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

Sounds simple right?

You toss the fish in the whisked egg, then coat it in breadcrumbs and bake it until fully cooked! It would be delicious over a salad, with a side of roasted potatoes, or some roasted veggies.
