Who doesn’t love anything called “Parmesan”? Well, after years of painful avoidance, our old friend is back and healthier than ever!


  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 cup whole-wheat or gluten-free breadcrumbs (or 4 slices of whole-grain toast ground in a blender)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 Pacific halibut steaks, about 4 ounces each
  • ¾ cup marinara or tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°.
  2. In a shallow medium bowl, combine the flaxseed and water and set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, salt, thyme, basil, and pepper.
  4. Dunk the fish in the flax mixture then in the breadcrumbs, using your hands to press the mixture firmly onto the fish.
  5. Place the fish skin-side down on a foil-lined baking sheet and cook for 8 minutes.
