The FDP team was lucky enough to meet Registered Dietitian Jen Haugen on a recent trip to Minnesota. She has partnered with Mower Refreshed to become a family dinner champion in her community and we couldn’t be more excited to have her on The Family Dinner Project Team! This Lemony Walnut-Crusted Fish Fillets Recipe is a great start!

This recipe comes straight from Jen’s fabulous website, Down-to-Earth Dietitian.

Serves 4

  • 1 lb. cod, about 1 inch thick, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice

  3. Combine bread mixture with walnuts in a small bowl. Evenly top cod with crumb mixture.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cod flakes with a fork and crumbs are golden brown
