Recipe by LifeIsGood
READY IN: 20mins




  • First make the almondine breading by placing Panko breadcrumbs, lemon zest, and sliced almonds into a food processor.
  • Pulse until it reaches a fine consistency. *The breading adheres to the fish better this way.*.
  • If applicable, debone the fish and remove the skin.
  • Salt and pepper the fish, to taste.
  • In a small bowl, mix eggs and water together to make an egg wash.
  • Place flour in a shallow pan.
  • Place the almondine breading in another shallow pan.
  • Dredge each fish fillet through the flour, dusting off any excess, dip in egg wash; place in breading, coating both sides of fish. If you aren't going to fry these right away, store them in the refrigerator at this point.
  • Preheat saute pan using medium heat.
  • Add the butter and melt, being careful not to burn.
  • Place fish in hot butter and cook on each side until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side, which is an average time. Depending on how thick your fish is, you may need to either shorten or lengthen the time.
  • Optional: Sprinkle chopped parsley on top of the fish before serving.
