w/skin on (6 to 8 ounces) or any other fish you prefer 1/2 cup of flour 6 fresh whole eggs, cracked and beaten in a bowl 8 ounces jumbo lump crabmeat 2 fresh lemons, cut into

➜ ➜ ➜ ➜

quarters, seeds removed

1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan 1/4 cup of chopped parsley 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup of white wine (Pinot Grigio)

➜ 1/4 cup canola oil for sauté ➜ Salt and pepper to taste

Directions Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Season fish with salt and pepper; dredge in flour; set aside. Add parsley and cheese to beaten eggs. Add oil to a medium sauté pan and heat. Dip floured fish into egg mixture and place in pan; sauté until lightly browned both sides of fish. Squeeze lemon quarters to baste fish with fresh lemon juice while cooking. Remove from pan and transfer fish to an ovenproof dish. Place in oven to finish cooking fish. In same pan,

remove excess oil, add wine and simmer. The alcohol will burn off quickly. Add cream, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer no more than 5 to 10 minutes, just until cream begins to reduce and thicken. Add butter and whisk until butter is blended. Add crabmeat and simmer. Fish will be ready at the same time. Place fish on plate; add crabmeat mixture over top of fish.
