Almond-Crusted Salmon

I agree with Cooking Light that the effect of this crusting blend on the salmon is almost buttery....it was really tasty.  As you can see in my not-so-perfect photo, the fishmonger gave me salmon filets in very uneven thicknesses, so the cooking wasn't 100% even but it still tasted good.  I served mine with basmati rice and broccoli.


Recipe Notes
Cooking time per the recipe is 15 minutes.  Mine was almost overdone on the thin end after 12 minutes.  I would recommend just watching your oven beginning at 10 minutes.
