  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 8 (6-ounce) redfish fillets
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (8-ounce) package crawfish tails, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dry sherry
  • Garnish: fresh oregano leaves, fresh thyme leaves
  1. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add almonds; cook, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and almonds are browned. Remove from skillet.
  2. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. Dust fish with flour. In a large skillet, heat oil and ¼ cup butter over medium heat. Add 4 fish fillets; cook until fish is browned and flakes easily with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Place on a serving platter. Repeat with remaining fish. Top with almond mixture.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high, and add garlic and remaining ¼ cup butter to skillet. Add cream; cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 6 minutes. Stir in crawfish tails; cook until heated through. Stir in thyme, oregano, and sherry. Spoon crawfish mixture over fish. Garnish with oregano and thyme, if desired.
