Udi’s Ancient Grains Crisps Coated Fish

This holiday season I was lucky enough to have the kind folks at Udi’s send me some of their gluten free products to sample.

One of these products was Udi’s Ancient Grains Aged Cheddar Crisps. These "crisps" or "crackers" are great for snacking, but have you considered them with fish? When these crisps are crushed up, they make a great crusted coating on mild tasting, white fish like cod or pollock. While I am not normally a big fish eater, adding a crusted layer of crushed Udi’s aged cheedar flavored Ancient Grains Crisps makes my month water. Follow the recipe we use at home below and begin to enjoy eating the bounty from the sea.  

1 medium fillet of white fish (Alaska Pollock, catfish, grouper, haddock, Pacific cod, etc.)
½ cup crushed Udi’s Ancient Grains Crisps –aged cheddar flavor
¼ cup olive oil
¼ - ½ tablespoon of herb of choice (Rosemary, thyme, or parsley recommended)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pat fish dry.
2. Brush both sides of fish with olive oil onto fish.
3. Sprinkle crisp crumbs on fish and place on baking sheet.
4. Bake until fish is cooked through; about 12-15 minutes.
5. Preheat the broiler. Place the fish under the broiler to lightly brown for approximately 30-45 seconds.

Serve immediately and thank me later!

What's in Udi's Ancient Grains Aged Cheddar Crisps? The ingredients are as follows:
Yellow corn flour, water, brown rice flour, non-GMO canola oil, corn starch, seasoning (salt, maltodextrin, sugar, whey powder, cheddar cheese [(pasteurized milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), buttermilk, whey, salt, disodium phosphate], natural flavors, citric acid), brown sugar, pinto bean grits (pinto beans, sugar), black sesame seeds, baking soda, amaranth, quinoa, sunflower lecithin, onion powder, sodium acid pyrophosphate, citric acid, beta carotene powder, malic acid, garlic powder, annatto powder.

Price: $3.99

The Verdict: These chips are tasty. I LOVED them as a coating for the fish and will definitely be doing that again. They are also great for a quick snack right out of the bag. They also come in two additional flavors, Ancient Grains Simply Sea Salt and Ancient Grains Jalapeño Cheddar. My only complaint is that even the Simply Sea Salt contains dairy according to the Udi's website so those folks who have issues with dairy are out of luck.

*Udi's did supply me with this product to review, however as always the opinions in this post are 100% mine and have not been influenced by anyone or anything.
