Pan-Fried Haddock Fillets with Orange Almond Sauce

This is a perfect light summer meal that tastes so exquisite you will be the only one to know that it took 10 minutes to make!

Ingredients (for 2 servings)

2 haddock fillets

2-3 tablespoons breadcrumbs

Juice of one orange

2 tablespoons butter

1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 tablespoons sliced toasted almonds

About 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

1/8 teaspoon fennel seeds



1. Wash the fillets and pat dry them with a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs on the plate and coat the fillets with them.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet and put the fish skin side up for about 5 minutes on low to medium heat (but not very low). Turn the fillets very gently to the other side and cook for another 3-4 minutes until golden.

3. In the meantime, make the orange almond sauce. Melt the butter in a small skillet until it bubbles, add the juice of one orange and the fennel seeds, stir well and let the sauce bubble on a low heat for about 5 minutes. Add almond slices and chopped parsley.

4. When the haddock fillets are cooked, place them on serving plates, pour the sauce on top and enjoy!
