Baked Sole Almondine

A few weeks ago , we surprised my Mom for her 80th birthday.  Since the party was 3 weeks in advance, she was totally surprised.  Our hostess went all out, making homemade scalloped potatoes, freshly steamed veggies and bread pudding. It was all delicious, but I was completely impressed with the easy preparation of the Sole Almondine. This recipe is definitely an example of less is more.

I’ve since made it myself.  I used cod which is a thicker fish, so baking time increased to 35 minutes.
