1 1/2 lbs fresh cod
3/4 cup raw pistachios
1 tbsp matcha powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
coconut oil spray (unrefined)
sea salt, to taste

1. Place all ingredients (except cod, coconut oil, and salt) into a food processor, pulse until it resembles a crust, not a powder. Transfer to a shallow dish.

 

2. Prep your fish and portion out four servings. Spray each fillet with coconut oil and cover the flesh side of the fish with the pistachio crust in a shallow dish. Dust with sea salt to finish.

 

3. Lightly coat a stainless steel sauté pan with coconut oil spray. Place over medium heat. Add in your fish and cook until firm to the touch, approximately eight to 10 minutes. Serve over a bed of freshly dressed greens and soba noodles and a delish clean broth-based soup.
