Almond fish is often served on Ukrainian Christmas eve, but it's delicious any time of the year! This is an adaptation from a recipe in the hugely popular Ukrainian Daughters Cookbook .
For Almond Fish you will need:
1/3 cup of flour
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp salt
½ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup almonds, finely chopped
1 lb. white fish
4 tablespoons butter (or oil if for Christmas Eve Supper)
Put the flour into a small bowl.
In a second bowl, combine egg and salt.
In a third bowl, combine breadcrumbs and almonds.
Coat fish on both sides with flour, then dip into the egg mixture, then into crumb mixture. Place on a plate. Continue until all fish is coated.
In a large skillet, melt two tablespoons of the butter. Cook fish over medium heat, turning once and adding more butter or oil as needed, until fish flakes easily with fork, about 5-8 minutes.
This makes 4 servings, and the recipe can be doubled/tripled.
