Makes 4 servings

  • 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 3⁄4 cup ground almonds,* Planters®

  • 1⁄2 cup panko (Japanese-style) bread crumbs

  • 1 tablespoon shredded orange zest

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, Bertolli®

  • 1  1⁄4 cups orange juice, Minute Maid®

  • 1 package (1.8-ounce) white sauce mix, Knorr®

  • Salt and ground black pepper

1. Place flour in a shallow bowl; set aside. In a second shallow bowl, beat together eggs and the water. In a third shallow bowl, combine almonds, panko bread crumbs, and orange zest.
2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, dredge trout in flour; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture. Coat with almond mixture. Fry trout in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Transfer to plate; keep warm.
3. For orange sauce, reduce heat to medium; add liqueur to skillet, scraping up browned bits from bottom. Add orange juice; whisk in white sauce mix. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Serve trout with orange sauce.
*Note: For uniform pieces, grind the almonds in a blender.
