Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a shallow dish, combine flour, sliced almonds, basil, thyme and salt and pepper. Pour milk into a shallow bowl.
Cut fillets into 4 equal pieces. Dip fish into milk and then into flour mixture. Place in a single layer on prepared pan. Sprinkle any remaining flour on top of fillets. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until thickest part of fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
While fish bakes, prepare salsa. Drain juice from fruit and place fruit in a medium bowl. Whisk together vinegar, lime juice, honey and cilantro. Pour over fruit.
To serve:
Place fish on plate and divide salsa evenly over fillets.
