Breaded Garlic Dill Fish
3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
3/4 cup toasted wheat germ
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1-1/2 teaspoons ground dried mustard
3 large garlic cloves, minced or pressed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 egg whites
Lemon Wedges for serving (optional)
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 Rinse the fish fillets, pat dry, and set aside.
3 Toast the bread crumbs on an unoiled baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes, until lightly golden. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
4 In a large shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, wheat germ, dill, mustard, garlic, and salt and pepper.
5 Lightly beat the egg whites in a separate shallow bowl. Dip the fillets in the egg whites and then dredge them in the bread crumb mixture to coat both sides evenly.
6 Place the breaded fillets in a lightly oiled or sprayed 8x12-inch baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
7 Offer several fresh lemon wedges with each serving and drizzle on the fresh juice to taste.
