Cafeteria style "Trout Almandine?"

alkapal | Aug 13, 2007 12:02 PM

I grew up in SW Florida, and the cafeteria (Morriosn's -- but I am not thinking that -- that was later) there in Fort Myers, Florida served a FRIED filet of trout that was lightly battered and really crisply fried, with sliced almonds in the nice thin crusty batter. So good, and I am so wanting to get that food memory back into the real sensory world. Any ideas, recipes? Does anyone remember this dish?

It curled up on the ends a little but with the frying, and it was a nice almond color itself. Ooooh, to taste it again! My dad hated cafeterias, but he bore up with this!
