I recently learned I was diabetic. I once had trout at a restaurant that was almond encrusted with a Grand Marnier Sauce. I decided to create a recipe that used sugar free Torani Syrup and sugar free Orange Marmelade.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat Oven to 400°.
  2. Pre-spray iron skillet or baking dish with Pam.
  3. Combine Almond Syrup and Egg Whites and Whip until stiff peaks.
  4. I used a stick beater bouncing up and down gently to add air.
  5. Gently fold in Almond flour until incorporated.
  6. Rinse fresh fillet, then pat fillet dry and season with salt and pepper.
  7. With spatula, coat one side of fillet with egg white mixture. Lay coated side down on skillet.
  8. Top each fillet with more egg white mixture until fillet is totally encased with coating top and sides.
  9. Bake 9 - 11 minutes until egg white mixture is starting to brown.
  10. Remove from oven and serve on a bed of butterhead lettuce dressed with Sugar Free Raspberry vinaigrette.
  11. Orange Sauce: Mix marmelade, butter, parsley and red pepper flakes together in small bowl and microwave for 30-60 seconds, stir well.
  12. Spoon Orange Sauce on top of fillets and serve.

My son and I made this recipe together and it was Great! I think the best fish recipe I ever had. The only thing we changed was we did not use sugar free marmalade. If I owned a restaraunt this would so be on the menu.
