Need a recipe for almond encrusted Lapu Lapu?

Almond Crusted Lapu Lapu

1 cup unblanched almonds
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
2 large eggs whites
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (6 oz) peices of Lapu Lapu fillets
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
5 cups mixed salad greens

Finely chop the almonds in a mini-chopper or food processor. Transfer the nuts to a shallow dish and stir in the paprika. Lightly whisk the egg whites in another shallow dish. Pat the fish dry and season both sides with salt and pepper. Dip each piece of fish into the egg, letting the excess fall back into the dish. Then press both sides of the fish into the nuts to coat. Place on a baking sheet, cover, and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to set the crust.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place rack on a baking sheet.

Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and add 1 tablespoon of the oil and the butter. Place the fish in the pan and then raise the heat to medium-high. Cook turning once, until the nuts set and turn golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer fish to the prepared pan and bake about 12 to 15 minutes or until fish feels firm..

Whisk the vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a smooth dressing. Add the salad greens and toss to coat evenly. Divide the salad evenly among 4 plates, top with the fish and serve.
