Tasty Tuesdays! GF Fillet of Sole Almondine

I had a great birthday week last week, dentist appointment included.  Friends, family, and good food....what more could you ask for??  Oh! I almost forgot, I also got an award from a fellow blogger late last week.  I will try to have that post ready for tomorrow but it may be Thursday so stay tuned. 

Things have been wildly busy these past several weeks....The kids are out of school and having a great summer and of course this means they are also underfoot since dad works a lot from home.  I'll never complain though, because the age will come soon enough when dad is just not "cool" anymore.  I currently enjoy a very generous "cool" status and I'm lovin' it....  I've been blessed with orders for Dr. Wise Formula II Intestinal Calm for Celiac disease.  You can click on the previous link to read all about the formula, and Dr. Wise, its creator.  Intact Multigland, which helps the body absorb B12,  has also been doing good, as well as a sharp increase in Kombu sales, which is excellent for balancing female hormones.   I thank you for your orders and even more for your questions. 

Hopefully this week, we will be adding more products to the shopping cart one of which is called Enviro-Detox.  It cleanses the body's 5 main detoxifying systems, liver, kidneys, bowels, lungs, and skin.  Adrenal Support which is self explanatory, works well in conjunction with Enviro-Detox which cleanses the body.  These are excellent products for many people and also work very well for eliminating migraine headaches!  Migraines are largely caused by toxin buildup in the body, especially the liver and when your body is cleansed, the migraines go away.  As my fellow sufferers know, when you have a migraine, your day just turns to......well, you know!   I will provide links to these products as I get them on the shopping cart or if you wish to order before-hand, you may call me at 918-836-0565 to place your order.

With all that being said, I am lucky to have a busy life and wouldn't trade it for anything.  Well maybe a few hours of it for another Gluten-Free cooking class at Michael Fusco's Riverside Grill in Tulsa, OK.  This weeks post is all about Fillet of Sole Almondine so lets get started! 

The recipe is as follows:

3 tbsp. sliced almonds (you know I don't like whole almonds but I can eat them sliced all day)

1 lb. fresh sole fillets (Sliced thin)

2 tbsp. GF all purpose flour (Rice flour also works very well seasoned with salt & pepper)

1 tbsp sliced scallions

A dash of ground black pepper and sea salt

1 tbsp. butter. ("clear butter" - melted, whey removed - fat only)


As you can see here, it is a very light meat....

In a large skillet, toast almonds over low heat.  Remove from skillet, set aside. Cut fillets in half lengthwise (this is where the "sliced thin" comes in.)  Season flour with salt and pepper; dredge fillets in flour.  Melt butter in skillet over medium-hi heat.  Saute' fillets until golden, turning once, about 3 minutes on each side.  Remove from skillet to a serving dish.  Return almonds to skillet with scallions; saute' until hot.  Spoon over fillets; serve immediately.....

Note to self....Fire the photographer or don't wiggle so much!! :)

Sole is often mistaken for another species but it is simply flounder in most cases.  Very light, delicious and I enjoy it a lot.  When you have your hot skillet with the melted butter, you should just start to get the first whiffs of smoke from the butter as you put the fillets in to saute'.  It will curl slightly (because it is thin) when done.  Spoon over the almonds & scallions and get out of the way!  Dinner is served!  Enjoy!!
