Step 1

Preheat oven to 275f degrees. Spread out the flour in a shallow dish and add seasoning. Dry the fish fillets with kitchen paper, then coat each fillet in the seasoned flour.

Step 2

Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan. Add the snapper fillets in batches if necessary, and cook for 2 minutes. Turn the fillets over carefully and cook the other side until golden. Using a fish slice, carefully transfer the fillets to a shallow dish and keep them warm in the oven.

Step 3

Add the almonds to the fat remaining and fry them for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden. Add the lime rind, juice and coriander to the almonds in the frying pan and stir well. Heat through for 1 to 2 minutes, then pour the mixture over the fish.

So easy and very tasty. I love lime and cilantro together. It just gives the snapper a real perk. Thanks Derf for a lovely dinner.
