admin's picture
Ingredients
  Sliced almonds 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Flour 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Red snapper fillets 1 3⁄4 Pound
  Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Unsalted butter 3 Tablespoon
  Scallions 4 , coarsely chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
Directions

1. In a large ungreased skillet, toast the almonds over medium heat, shaking frequently, until golden, about 5 minutes. Remove the almonds from the pan and set aside.
2. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Lightly dredge the snapper fillets in the seasoned flour.
3. In the same large skillet, warm the oil with 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat until the butter is melted. Add the fillets and saute until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove the fish to a plate and cover loosely to keep warm.
4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet. Add the scallions and garlic, and saute until the scallions are just limp, about 1 minute. Add the almonds and cook until coated with butter, about 1 minute.
5. Serve the fish topped with the almonds and scallions.
