  • Entree

  • 1/3 cup Hol-Grain gluten free bread crumbs, or your favorite compliant breadcrumb substitute, puffed amaranth works well also.
  • 1/3 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (for Os) or type appropriate seasonings as desired, optional
  • 2 (6-oz) pieces center-cut cod, 3/4 inch thick, fresh or thawed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil

How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, millet flour, salt, and seasoning in a large sealable plastic bag and shake to mix.
  3. Season fish with salt and pepper on both sides and, working with 1 piece at a time, put fish in bag and shake to coat well with crumbs. Dip fish in eggs, then shake in crumbs again to coat. Transfer fish to a plate.
  4. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch heavy ovenproof skillet (preferably cast-iron) over high heat until hot but not smoking, then fry fish until undersides are golden brown, about 1 minute. Add more oil if needed, turn over, and cook 1 minute more. Put skillet in upper third of oven and bake until fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes. (May want to use a different pan if the first one is starting to smoke)
  5. Serve with brazilian or southern collards, followed by berries
