Crispy, Delicious Fish, and Compliant too!

Testing fish for the first time after your Cleanse? Break out your hemp seeds, your pumpkin and even your chia to get a compliant fish dish on the table in no time. Most breaded fish recipes call for eggs, flour and bread or cracker crumbs. By using the seed trio, you'll amp up the protein per serving, avoid ingredients you may not have integrated yet and still achieve a crispy, nicely textured fish dish.


  • Filet of fish (your choice. Trout, salmon, halibut, cod all work well here) 
  • 1/4-1/2 c. pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp seasonal blend from kit
  • Himalayan salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/4 c. hemp seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Over low heat, lightly toast the pumpkin seeds until you start to hear them pop, they'll have turned a nice, golden brown. Allow seeds to cool and transfer to a cutting board. Roughly chop the seeds. If you are making more than one filet, you can opt for a blender or food processor here although we like the resulting texture achieved with just a knife. 

Mix pumpkin seeds, seasoning and if using, salt and pepper.

In a second small bowl combine the chia seeds and water. Set aside until the chia has gelled (these will take the place of your eggs). 

Finally, in a third bowl, place your hemp seeds (these will take the place of the flour in most breaded fish recipes.) 

So now you have three bowls of seeds: pumpkin, chia and hemp. 

First, start by dipping the fish into the chia and spreading the mixture evenly over the filet. Second, place the filet into the hemp seeds, pressing the seeds into the fish on both sides. Thirdly, dip the fish into the pumpkin seed spice mixture and again, press the seeds into a thick coating around the fish.

Place the filet on a well oiled baking sheet and bake for 15-30 minutes dependent on the thickness of the fish.
