Fish Almondine

I thought fish sounded wonderful for dinner tonight since it has been a while since we have had it.  One of the recipes in my new cookbook was for Fish Almondine which turned out great.  I started by combining slivered almonds and butter in an 8-inch square glass pan and microwaving them until the almonds turned golden brown.  The fish fillets were then placed in the baking dish, turning to coat both sides.  I sprinkled them with parsley, salt, grated lemon peel, freshly ground black pepper, freshly chopped dill and covered with the browned almonds.

I served the fish fillets with a side of steamed broccoli and a salad which made it a scrumptious meal.

Fish Almondine
Makes 2 servings

1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup butter
1 pound thin fish fillets
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped

In 8-inch square baking dish, place almonds and butter.  Microwave at high 4 to 5 minutes until almonds are golden brown.  Remove almonds and set aside.  Place fish in baking dish, turning to coat both sides.  Sprinkle with parsley, salt, lemon zest, black pepper, dill and almonds. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake, uncovered, 14 to 18 minutes.
