Expert Tips

*Do not use margarine or spreads.

**To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

Superb, elegant and extremely simple! The browned butter flavor will knock your socks off. You don’t want to waste even a tiny drop of the butter, so serve the fish and vegetables over angel hair pasta to soak it up.
