Kamut crusted Mahi Mahi Cutlets

mahimahi9

I love fish cutlets , it’s my deceptive recipe to convince my son to eat fish. I know it’s fried but frankly, I tried to bake the fillets before ; they came out very dry and we ended up with leftovers,that ended up into the garbage !

My challenge was finding clean bread crumbs. I was not looking for gluten free bread crumbs ,I am searching for bread crumbs made  of ancient wheat. Then I decided to make my own. I used to make Kellogg’s crusted chicken cutlets before ,so I said why not make kamut crusted fish cutlets! I was so happy it worked, in fact it came out much juicier and flavorful than my usual recipe (may be because I used Dash this time). So I am sharing it with you right now. Hope you’ll like it.

To make Kamut crusted Mahi Mahi Cutlets you’ll need:

4 wild mahi mahi fillets,cut horizontaly (so you’ll get 8 cutlets)
1 c  KAMUT® Puffs

To marinade the fish:

1 Tbsp dried parsley.
1/2 tsp garlic powder.
2 tbsp venigar.
1 tsp Dash Original Blend.

1/2 tsp paprika.

1/2 tsp taragon.
1 tsp each cumin ,dried coriander.
