I am going to flat out tell you that I didn't follow the directions for this one. I used almonds, flour, salt, pepper, butter and flounder. But somewhere along the line, I went into auto pilot and stopped reading the recipe.
Sometimes, that just happens to me.
Of course, I have been told that I am not good at following directions on a good day. I suppose that it's only natural to be even worse at it on a bad day.
Am I the only person in the group who kept thinking about The Little Mermaid throughout this recipe? From the time I first picked up the fish from the store, Ariel's aria (I know, that's not really what it's called; but I like the way that sounds) kept popping into my head.
I have to tell you, even as an adult I love this movie - especially the lobster. Oh, that Sebastian was something else - especially the way he tormented the cook. Bwahahaha.... My girls love the movie too, so I TOTALLY get to use them as an excuse to watch it. (Hey, have to use up those parent privileges wherever you can get them.)
In going to the Disney Wiki for "Flounder", the following two statements struck me:
- "Flounder scares easily, and is prone to panicking under stressful situations, but when Ariel is in trouble, he comes through for her without hesitation."
- "In the film, he is the only character to give unconditional support for Ariel's fascination with human things."
This week, there are no fancy photos. Just crusted fish in a pan. (There was also crusted chicken in the oven for my non-fish eater. She loved it.)
This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie. Head on over to check out what the more compliant FFwDers came up with this week... (I know, I know; I have been a rebel two weeks in a row. I promise that I made the Fougasse as instructed...almost. It felt good to finally get back into my comfort zone)
