What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pound white-fleshed fish fillets
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 2 cups sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus more as needed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 1/2 cup Amaretto liqeur

What to Do

  1. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, red pepper, and salt; mix well. Season fillets with 1 teaspoon of mixture, reserving remaining mixture.
     
  2. Place egg white in a shallow dish; place almonds in another shallow dish. Dip each fillet in egg white then in almonds, coating completely.
