    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!
