Toasted Almond-Topped Fish
- 1 pound fresh or frozen fish fillets or steaks
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds, coarsely chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
- Scored cucumber slices (optional)
- Curly endive (optional)
- Pitted ripe olives (optional)
- Lemon wedges (optional)
- Thaw fish, if frozen. If using fillets, separate fillets, or cut fillets or steaks into 4 serving-size portions. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish. (To measure thickness of fish fillets or steaks, place a ruler against the thickness part of the fish. Use this measurement to calculate the cooking time for fish. Generally allow 4 to 6 minutes for each 1/2 inch thickness of fish.)
- Pour buttermilk into a shallow dish. In another shallow dish combine bread crumbs, parsley, dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Dip fish into buttermilk. Then roll fish in crumb mixture. Place coated fish in a greased shallow baking pan.
- Sprinkle fish with coarsely chopped almonds. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over fish. Bake in a 500 degree F oven until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork. Allow 4 to 6 minutes for each 1/2 inch of thickness.
- To serve, transfer fish to a warm serving platter; garnish with cucumber slices, endive, and ripe olives, if desired. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired. Makes 4 servings.

Another Corned Beef recipe:
2 medium yellow onions,
peeled6 whole cloves
3 1/2 pound piece corned beef, preferably bottom round
3 large carrots, peeled and cut into thirds
2 bay leaves
8 black peppercorns
1 medium head green cabbage
4-6 russet potatoes, peeled and halved
Salt and freshly ground black pepperHot mustard (optional)
Stud onions with cloves. Rinse corned beef in cold water to remove brine. Put beef in a large pot and add onions, carrots, bay leaves, peppercorns, and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 2 hours, skimming occasionally.
Wash cabbage, remove core and any torn leaves, then cut into 6 wedges. Add cabbage and potatoes to beef, then cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.
Transfer beef to a cutting board and cover with a plate weighted with heavy cans (weighting makes meat easier to slice). Transfer onions, carrots, cabbage, and potatoes to a platter. Remove cloves from onions. Strain cooking liquid, discarding bay leaves and peppercorns. Return liquid to pot and cook over high heat until reduced by one-third, 20-30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Return vegetables to stock and heat through for about 5 minutes. Remove plate and cans from meat and cut across the grain, in 1/4"-thick slices. Arrange beef and vegetables on warmed platter. Moisten with stock. Serve with additional stock and hot mustard if you like.

When making Chocolate Chip cookies instead of brown sugar use Honey! It gives a great Texture and a very tasteful treat! or try putting some nutmeg, cinnamon, pinch of lemon peel, and cloves it makes it taste very festive. or just put in cinnamon = ) Its great to experiment new things = )
