Walnut Crusted Fish Fillet & Fresh Cilanto Corn Hash

I like taking close up shots of my food. It's so full of texture. Chris let me cook last night, and I tried this dish to impress. He liked it so I was happy. Pretty healthy too since the only fat I used was a pat of butter in the crust. The crust was made of chopped walnuts, breadcrumbs, parsley, parmesean cheese, dijon mustard, pepper and butter, mixed up and pressed into the seasoned fillets. Bake at 350ยบ for about 10-15 minutes and voila! Crunchy crust, flaky fish, almost no fat. The corn hash was pretty simple also. Fresh corn kernels cooked and drained, roasted red pepper, avocado, chopped cilantro, shallots, garlic, salt and pepper. Add a dash of vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. There were a couple of red potatoes left, so I just boiled it with garlic and mashed. Not bad, eh?

What kind of fish is that? Looks white- tilapia perhaps? Funny, I was just pondering last night what to do with all the leftover nuts I have from a party I threw a few months ago and realized I can crust chicken in it and bake. Good stuff :)
