FFwD: Almond Flounder (Cod) Meuniere

Almond Flounder Meuniere

Well, hello French Fridays with Dorie, how in the world is it time for you again? Wow, such a fast week. Thankfully, this was a super quick meal and very easy one to put together on a Thursday night (and I even had enough time to bake a cake for our anniversary dinner tomorrow night). It’s our fourth — flowers. A cake made with flour? Get it? Yeah, it’s kind of a stretch but that’s what I’ve got. Anywhoooo….

This week it was Almond Flounder Meuniere but with cod. Because I had a hell of a time finding flounder or even what my first choice was — ling cod. I didn’t feel like traipsing all over town so I finally settled for some true Cod I got at New Seasons. And now I just realized I should have gone to that fish place on Hawthorne, by the produce market. Damn. Oh well. I think I’m meandering here. Probably time to get on with it.

Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and here are my pics. I really liked this dish and loved the lemony/almond-y coating. Delicious!

Ground almonds, flour and lemon zest.

In the pan. I used non-stick as I’ve had sad times trying to make fish in a non, non-stick pan before.

Very photogenic! With lemon wedges, cilantro (too lazy to go pick parsley outside), and some sauteed green beans.

  1. Gosh..it must be really nice with cod fish. It is so expensive here that only festive season we will buy them :p It is great with flounders too. Love the nutty crunch and the soft tender meat 🙂 I love it and will be making it again for the family. Have a nice weekend !

  2. Confessions: Thanks! 🙂
    Cher: Thank you! We had a very nice one!
    Alice: I thought the cod worked well, but next time I will try to find flounder a bit more.
    Elin: Cod’s pretty cheap here, so it’s more of the when-we-don’t-want-a-special-ocassion-fish 😉
    Betsy: Thank you! 🙂
