Oh, boy, are you in for a treat!!! This salmon turned out amazing, despite the fact that I forgot my bake element is broken when I planned to make it, so instead of properly baking it, I had to babysit the broiler!

When making any salmon dish, remember to choose wild caught salmon only! You do not want farmed salmon for a number of very good health & environmental reasons!

  6. Pulse your almonds in the food processor until they turn to almond meal.
  7. Sprinkle the almond meal all over the salmon, evenly.
  8. Bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes. Cover with foil if the almonds are browning too quickly.
  9. If the almonds haven’t browned by the time the salmon is cooked (it will look a bit puffy, and be flaky when prodded with a fork), broil for a minute or two to finish.
  10. Garnish with chopped green onion.
