Sundried Tomato and Walnut Crusted Fluke

I am a Daddy’s girl, and a day out on his boat with him makes me a happy camper! I have been consumed by wedding planning details (8 days, eek), and a day out on the water was just what I needed! We only caught one fish (ok, HE caught the only fish), but that is dinner for tonight! Can’t get fresher than that!

I am using fluke for this recipe, but if you can’t find it, any filet of white fish would work. You could use flounder, tilapia, or sole.

Ingredients:
2 large filets of fluke
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
5 leaves fresh basil
1 clove garlic
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup walnuts
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. In a food processor, chop the walnuts until they form chunky crumbs. Transfer to a plate.
3. Rinse out food processor, add sundried tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Blend until it forms a paste.
4. Coat each filet with sundried tomato paste then coat with walnuts. Place on baking sheet.
5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until walnuts begin to brown.

Serve with a fresh tomato salad from the garden!
