Almond Crusted Sea Bass with Yogurt Mint Sauce!

Sea bass is awesome because it’s light and mild and takes on the flavor of whatever ingredients you partner with it. In this case, I added almonds for their great flavor and texture. I've also used pine nuts if you would rather use those. As for the sauce, it's a creamy blend of yogurt and Dijon mustard with a hint of fresh mint. I used yogurt because that's what I had on hand - you can certainly use sour cream instead.

Almond Crusted Sea Bass with Yogurt-Mint Sauce

Serves 4

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 12-15 minutes

Cooking spray
4 sea bass fillets (about 5 ounces each)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup light plain yogurt
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

Preheat the oven to 375ºF.  Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Season both sides of the sea bass fillets with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Transfer the fish to the prepared pan and place the almonds on top of each fillet.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the fish is fork-tender. 
Meanwhile, combine yogurt, mustard and mint and mix well.  Serve the sea bass with the yogurt mixture spooned over top.
