Preparation time: 30 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 45
Servings: 4


  1. 1 1/2 
    Cups blanched whole almonds (about 7 oz.)
  2. cod or halibut fillets (about 2 lbs.)
  3. Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Spread
  4. Tbsp. corn oil [or vegetable oil]
  5. Tbsp. onion, finely chopped
  6. cloves garlic, finely chopped
  7. Knorr® Shrimp flavor Bouillon Cubes, crumbled
  8. Cups water
  9. 3/4 
    Cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  10. Tbsp. lemon juice
  11. Tbsp. sliced roasted red peppers
  12. Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley leaves (optional)


  • In a food processor or blender, process almonds until finely ground and set aside.

  • Season the fillets, if desired, with salt and ground black pepper. In a 12­ inch nonstick skillet, melt the Spread with the oil over medium­-high heat and cook the fillets, turning once, about 4 minutes or until almost cooked. Remove the fillets and set aside.

  • In the same skillet, cook the onion and garlic over medium­-high heat, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir in the Knorr® Shrimp flavor Bouillon Cubes blended with water, mayonnaise, lemon juice and the almonds. Reduce heat to medium and simmer stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes.

  • Return the fillets to the skillet and simmer 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

  • Garnish with roasted red peppers and parsley. Serve, if desired, with hot cooked rice.
