Weeknight Wednesday: Extra Crispy Fish with Lemon Dill Dip

Many of the recipes I post out here take some time to prepare, cook or both. As many of us (myself included) do quite a bit of work night cooking, I have decided to occasionally highlight those quick recipes on Wednesdays.

Thin fish fillets cook very quickly.

But you don’t sacrifice flavor at all for speed.

I love these individually packed fillets.

I love these push tubes to measure ingredients like mayonnaise. If you use a regular measuring cup you leave so much of it sticking to the sides of the cup.

Extra Crispy Fish with Lemon Dill Dip

Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 14 mins | Servings: 4 | Difficulty: Easy


2 (1 ounce) bags low carb soy chips
4 (8 ounce ) fish fillets
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon pepper


1) Spread ground chips on a piece of wax paper or paper plate. Dredge fillets in chips to coat on both sides.

2) Heat 1 tablespoon  of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add half the fish and cook until just opaque and golden brown outside, 3-4 minutes per side. Carefully transfer to plates and tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tablespoon of oil and fillets.

3) Combine mayonnaise, dill and zest in a small bowl. Season with pepper and serve alongside fish.

    Brilliant idea of using soy chips. Makes it so much more healthy.

    I love how simple this recipe is; I read a lot of food blogs and there’s been two emerging trends: one is obviously simplicity, but the other overwhelming one is an abundance of superfluous ingredients without understanding the true heart of what they’re making. This looks great; can’t wait to try!
