Gluten-Free Herb Crusted Fish Fillets – Cleveland Clinic

herb-crusted fish

White fish is a low-calorie, lean protein treat, and with this recipe, you don’t even have to skip the breading. Gluten-free bread crumbs or rice cereal create a tasty crunch. Hint: Add flaxseed to the coating for a double dose of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
