7) Shake off any excess flour

8) Next, move the fillets to the whisked egg plate and coat the fillets on both sides

9) Finally transfer the fillets to the third plate and coat with a layer of the ground almond mixture

10) Place the coated fillets skin side down in the pan.  Let the fillets cook for approximately 4-5 minutes in the avocado oil pan

11) Flip the fillets over and cook for a further 2 minutes (approximately)

12) Transfer the pan (ensuring it is ovenproof) to the oven and further cook the fillets under a medium grill until cooked through.  This may take as little as 3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets you’re cooking. Cooking times will vary and you will need to gauge the total cooking time accordingly***
