1/2 cup slivered almonds
4 mahi-mahi fillets
4 tablespoons melted butter
4 tablespoons sherry
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
1/2 pound center cut bacon, fried and crumbled
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 green onions, chopped
lemon wedges

Lightly brown almonds in nonstick pan and set aside. Combine butter, parsley, lemon rind and juice. Rub both sides of the fillets with sherry and place on a broiler pan. Sprinkle with pepper. Spoon some of the butter mixture over each fillet. Broil for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet. Turn over, spoon on more butter sauce and continue broiling until done. Do not overcook or the fish will be dry. Remove to a serving platter. Sprinkle with almonds, bacon and green onions. Garnish with lemon wedges. Swordfish or shark may be substituted for mahi-mahi if desired.
