First, prep the sauce: saute the almonds and garlic over medium heat in the avocado oil until golden and toasted....watch it carefully so as not to burn the almonds. Turn the heat off when it the garlic and almonds begin to brown and then set aside.
In a small bowl mix the milk and egg.
In another small bowl, mix the chosen flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
Preheat a large skillet over medium heat, my cast iron skillet is my favorite for extra crispy coatings!
Dredge the fish fillet in the milk mixture, then the flour, pressing the fillet down to coat the fish evenly.
Saute all fillets in oil until golden, and then flip to the other side, adding more oil as necessary to prevent sticking.
When you are ready to serve, add the butter and lemon juice to the waiting almond/garlic sauce, and heat gently to warm and melt. Serve atop fish!
