Coconut-Crusted Haddock with Curried Pumpkin Seeds

Whole Foods Market


  • 2 Teaspoons  canola oil
  • 2 Teaspoons  honey
  • 1 Teaspoon  curry powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon  salt
  • 1 Cup  pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 Pound  haddock or cod fillets
  • 1/2 Cup  roughly grated unsweetened coconut
  • 3/4 Cups  panko-style breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons  butter
  • 3 Tablespoons  apricot fruit spread or preserves, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon  lime juice

Use sole or flounder fillets to make this main course, too. Serve with sautéed spinach or kale on the side. The pumpkin seeds can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to use.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Stir together oil, honey, curry powder, cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl. Add pumpkin seeds and toss to coat. Transfer seeds to prepared baking sheet, spreading out as evenly as possible and bake, tossing occasionally, until toasted and fragrant, 12 to 14 minutes. Set aside to let cool, then peel pumpkin seeds away from foil, separate with fingers, if needed, and transfer to a bowl.

Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees. Arrange fish fillets in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with lightly oiled foil; set aside. Combine coconut, breadcrumbs, butter, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Stir together apricot spread and lime juice in a small bowl, then brush over the top of each fish fillet. Pat breadcrumb mixture onto each fillet and bake until just cooked through and golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to plates, top with curried pumpkin seeds and serve.
