Notes

I tried this with 4 different nuts... Pistachios, Pecans, Cashews, and Macadamia nuts. All of them were delicious, however, the Pecan crust was the best with the gingered beurre al'orange... The macadamia would have been great with lemon instead of orange... The pistachio needed a standard Beurre Blanc in my opinion. The Cashew? Well, it was good all by itself... But I could see it pairing well with either ginger and key lime or ginger and makrut lime butter or even the saffron sauce (which is really a Beurre blanc with saffron and lime leaves added) that I use on scallops (Although I am not so sure about wasting saffron on something like flounder)

This looks good!! My daughter is always bugging me to make more fish. I'll have to give it a try!
