Recipe: Gluten-Free Herb Crusted Fish Fillets

Reel in the brain food with a tempting white fish dish

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 creates a tasty crunch. Hint: Add flaxseed to the coating for a double dose of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
