Paleo Roasted Haddock with Walnut Crust

Posted by

I love fish. I know it’s not for everybody (including my boyfriend) — but I love the fact that it’s so light and flaky, yet it fills you up. Haddock is one of the more mild-tasting types of fish, so it’s great for those who usually shy away from seafood.

It’s also packed with nutrients that are great for the heart and brain like Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids. The addition of the walnut crust amps up those benefits, but it also provides that satisfying crunchy coating that you might miss when you’re eating Paleo.

  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
