Almond Lemon Crusted Fish

I am in a healthy eating mode, and am trying out new recipes this week.  I made this last night and thought it was great.  I would have loved a rich Lemon butter sauce over the top of it, but I think that would have taken away from the overall goal of being healthy. :)

2 lemons
1 cup slivered almonds - coarsely chopped
2 TBSP. fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried
2 TBSP. olive oil
2 tsp. kosher salt
Pepper, to taste
5 pieces Tilapia or Halibut
8 tsp. Dijon mustard
4 cloves garlic
1 lb. spinach

Directions:  Combine lemon zest, almonds, dill, 2 TBSP. olive oil, 1 tsp. salt and pepper in a small bowl. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Wash and pat dry fish and then place fish on baking sheet.  Spread 1 tsp. dijon mustard on each piece of fish (thin coat).  Press the almond mixture on top of each fish.  Bake the fish at 400 until white and flaky.

In a saute pan, take remaining olive oil, spinach, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and sauté until spinach is wilted.  Place spinach on plate and place crusted fish on top.  I served with roasted butternut squash and brown rice, but if you aren't worried about being as healthy, this would taste yummy with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus.
