Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1/2 French baguette, sliced and lightly toasted
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 6 oz sea bass fillets
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Process in a food processor: toasted baguette slices, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper along with 2 Tbsp EVOO. Use on/off pulses until you have moist crumbs - big pieces don't adhere well, so you're going for a smaller and uniform crumb size.
  2. Working on a sheet pan, spread mustard on tops of fish fillets and press breadcrumbs on to cover the entire surface. (can be prepped to this point, covered and refrigerated up to 6 hrs ahead of baking).
  3. 400 oven. Bake fish until opaque in center, about 20 minutes.
  4. Great to serve alongside roasted potatoes and braised greens with a balsamic drizzle.
