Flavors ~Cod~ Pan-Fried Cod with Almond Crust

The flavor of the week is Cod.  I think that the only place you get cod in Alabama is at Captain D's. I was tempted to go there and take a picture before I left for Italy and just be done with it.But . . . I started thinking of a trout almondine I had made before. Cod would work just fine.
Pan-Fried Cod with Almond Crust
4 fish fillets
2 large eggs
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter
Almondine Breading
1/2 cup panko crumbs
1/2 cup almonds, sliced
First, make the almondine crust by minching the almonds and panko together in a Majic Bullet or processor. Salt and pepper the fish.
In a small bowl, mix egg and water together to make an egg wash. Place the almondine breading in another shallow pan. Dredge each fish fillet through the flour, dusting off any excess, then dipping in egg wash and placing in breading, coating both sides of fish.
Melt the butter in a saute pan using medium heat. Place fish in hot butter and cook on each side until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side be careful not to knock off the Almond breading.
That's better than Captain D's any day!
