Pan Fried Lemon Sole with Buttered Almond

I was planning to have chicken for dinner but my hubby called on my way home asking for fish...so fish it is.. for dinner.  It's so last minute and I really don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen so here I thought of this recipe :) Pan fried lemon sole drizzled with buttered almond infused with lemon juice.  Yummy!

This recipe serves 2 person

Ingredients:

1/4 cup plain flour
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp black pepper
4 pieces of lemon sole fillet - approximately 100g each
2 tbsp olive oil
90g butter
1/2 cup almond flakes
4 tbsp cup fresh lemon juice


Method:
1)   Season fish with salt and pepper. 
2)   Toss seasoned fish in flour. Shake off excess   
3)   Place large skillet with olive oil and 1/3 butter at medium high heat. Cook fish until browned on both sides. Remove, drain on kitchen paper towel and set aside.
4)   Heat remaining butter in same cleaned skillet. Cook almonds by stirring constantly until lightly browned. Stir in lemon juice; drizzle almond mixture over fish.
5)   Serve fish with blenched French beans if you like!

>> Tip to note : 
- You may substitute the lemon sole fish fillet with any other mild white fish fillet.
