Sea Bass Almondine is a quick and easy delicious dish!

Sunday Supper last night — we had fresh sea bass in the fridge and I was hankering for something “new” in my recipe repertoire.  With a little research, I found a Sea Bass Almondine recipe and then I Melindaized it.

My hubster couldn’t get enough of it — and we both packed the leftovers for lunch today!

Added bonus:  this recipe is EASY and FAST!

Ingredients:

2 lb sea bass fillets
2 fresh lemons (juice — 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup is fine)
1 cup flour (more or less — to dredge)
6 tablespoons butter
2/3 c slivered blanched almonds

1 cup chopped fresh parsley (I used flat leaf, but any parsley is fine)

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1.  Rinse fillets, dip in lemon juice and then dredge in flour.

2.  Melt butter in pan; saute’ fillets in butter until delicately brown on both sides. Remove to heated platter.

3.  Add almonds to pan & brown very quickly scraping bottom (no need to clean from sea bass as those butter chunks will add flavor); add salt & pepper to taste, a dash of lemon juice & parsley. Pour almond mixture over hot fillets.

4.  Serve at once. Makes 2-4 servings.

Tips:

1.  Serve w/ a chilled Sauvignon Blanc or your favorite white or light red (Pinot goes w/ anything as far as I’m concerned).

2.  We served this dish w/ zucchini sauted w/ black truffle butter and a little salt & pepper.  I recommend a green vegetable for color.

3.  Rationalization:  okay – butter.  It’s fattening.  But it tastes sooooooooo good!  Heck, w/ 2 lbs sea bass and all those goodies; it’s really not “that much” butter per serving.  Bottom-line: don’t skimp on butter.  It’s what made this dish extra special.

Opa!
