What's Cooking? Almond Crusted Paiche With A Whole Foods Market Giveaway!

In our home, fish gets into the dinner rotation about two to three times a month. I love pretty much the entire gamut of seafood, but our girls are a bit more particular. We tend to cook white, mild, buttery fish for them.  I noticed a fish called Paiche at the seafood counter during my last trip to Whole Foods. Paiche comes from South America and fit our criteria, so we decided to branch out and give it a try! We  (and by we, I mean Josh) "breaded" the Paiche in egg and crushed almonds and pan fried it lightly, which gave the white flesh of the Paiche a lovely crunchy texture. We served it with a roasted sweet potato and sautéed shaved brussels sprouts.

  1. I'm lucky that my kids like fish. One of our favorite easy things to do with fish is spread pesto on tilapia, then bake. It's really good. I wish they liked sweet potatoes! Odd ducks.

  2. That is a great dinner! I've not had Paiche, but I would like to try it. I'll be watching for WF to have a special! The crushed almonds sounds delish - a nice way to try this! Yum!

  3. I need to get fish into the rotation here. Kids aren't big fans though. This looks like a good place to start...

  4. We love seafood, I try to menu plan around fish yet it's not easy.

  5. I would love to try the paiche - ive only recently started to eat fish and only have tilapia in my dinner rotation - but this looks up my alley!
