French Fridays with Dorie – Almond Flounder Meuniere

May 4, 2012 in fish by amanda

So the reason Frozen Friday happened a day early this week is because I wanted to participate in French Fridays with Dorie. I actually want to participate every week but then… sardines and lamb and other things I don’t like/can’t afford make their way onto the schedule.

This week’s I was especially excited about because it’s fish coated with ground almonds – and I love anything coated in almonds. Seriously, you could cover cardboard in ground almonds and I’d tell you it was the greatest thing you’d ever cooked.

This was ridiculously simple. You just brush one side of the fish with egg yolk, coat it in an almond meal and flour mixture and then fry it in brown butter. That’s it. It took less than 10 minutes and I felt like I was having such a fancy lunch!

If you can’t tell, I loved this and plan on making it again with the rest of the fish I bought. I squeezed a ton of lemon juice over the top and it was absolute perfection!

(I used tilapia because there is no water in Colorado and therefore no fish besides tilapia. Unless, of course, you want to pay $20/pound. And I don’t. I’d rather buy nailpolish.)

The members of French Fridays with Dorie don’t share the recipes because want to encourage you to check out Around My French Table but a quick google search may just bring up the recipe for you. Hint hint, wink wink.
