Dip fish in milk and season with salt and pepper. Roll in flour. Melt butter in skillet -and cook fish. Then remove from skillet and add almonds. Pour this sauce over cooked fish.
But if you are in New Orleans for Mardi Gras or visiting you can have at this amazing restaurant its on the menu- a favorite of my Moms when we are in the city:
After immigrating from Pardies, France, Jean Galatoire opened Galatoire’s in New Orleans in 1905. His fifth-generation relatives are still part-owners of the restaurant. Since opening, Galatoire’s has hosted some historical figures, including various politicians, and author Tennessee Williams, who mentioned the restaurant in his novel A Streetcar Named Desire. In addition to its renowned, competent staff, Galatoire’s is known for its adherence to local tradition. The menu boasts both Creole specialties, like turtle soup and shrimp Creole, and French specialties, like bouillabaisse and crabmeat au gratin, making the dining experience a journey across Louisiana’s culinary heritage.
