My family loves this recipe. I have made it 5 times already. I prepared recipe as stated and took MRSEL's advice and doubled sauce. Outstanding! The saltiness of the capers and browned butter almonds adds so much to this dish

My DH and I enjoyed this classic fish preparation, and scraped up every last crispy, browned almond and tangy caper on our plate. I was confused by the term "Sauce" used in this recipe. The small amount of butter and the juice of half a lemon sizzled in a hot pan, does not create more than a drop or two of liquid. But the browned almonds and capers were a delicious garnish and we enjoyed your recipe.

Really good! I ended up cooking the sauce in a separate pan while cooking the fish. I didn't want the fish to get soggy in the oven while waiting for the sauce. The only almonds I had in the pantry were whole, so I just chopped them up and used them. The flavors blended perfectly! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks!

Truly a company-worthy dish, this was quick to make and very tasty. I did tweak a bit, however. I used a 1/4 cup of lemon juice to cook the almonds and capers in, instead of just a dash. The lemon juice compliments the capers very well. The capers make this dish jump with flavor, so don't omit them. Thanks for posting, MrsEl!

I made this with Sole and while the fish was really nice, the "sauce" was a bit too salty for me. I think if I made it again I would significantly reduce the amount of capers used. The almond flavor was GREAT though.

Lovely!! I had never made flounder before and this was better, IMHO, than any restaurant treatment of that fish. I served this with roasted asparagus (olive oil and Montreal steak seasoning) and we thought the flavors were amazing! Thank you MrsEl for a wonderful treat!

Fabulous. This is the only fish I have ever cooked. I was always intimidated about cooking fish at home. I also have made this dish 5-10 times. It is sooo easy. I made for my in-laws and they ate every bite. I also use extra lemon for a little extra sauce. Definitely "guestworthy" as Pat from Ohio stated.

Had this for dinner tonight and will definitely make it again. I did add some Old Bay Seasoning to the flour along with pepper. In our household Old Bay and seafood goes together. Great recipe! Thanks.

Excellent dish! It's easy to make, and very delicious! It's even good as leftovers, and normally I don't love fish the second time around. I also made extra sauce, as the actual recipe doesn't make a lot.
