I just picked up a recipe from the Rice Crispies site. I would never have thought of using Rice Crispies to coat fish, but actually I thought this recipe looked very interesting. Particularly as there has been a lot in the news telling us how good almonds are for us and how, in one study, they fed a test group 2 oz almonds a day and they didn't gain weight.

- In large plate or shallow pan, mix together crushed cereal, almonds and parsley. Place flour on second plate.
