  • 1 egg

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 cups ground almonds (or almond meal)

  • ¼ cup coconut flour

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or clarified butter


  1. Preheat oven to hi broil.

  2. Whisk egg, salt, and pepper.

  3. Combine almonds, coconut flour, and lemon zest in a shallow bowl.

  4. Dip each fillet in egg mixture.

  5. Press each side of the fillet into the almond mixture.

  6. Place fillets in a glass baking dish.

  7. Place a pat of coconut oil or clarified butter on top of each fillet.

  8. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until fillet is done.
