Almond Salmon

When you look in your food cupboards and they are full but much of it is ingredients that you may have bought to do one particular dish and you’re left with all these half used packets and jars. That’s happening. For me the current situation is apricots (tagine), sesame seeds (stir-fry) and ground-almonds (cake). I’ve lots of other ingredients likes sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds that I am fairly good to use up – toasted over salads when I think of it etc. – but the ground-almonds had been there for quite a while. Adding them onto baked salmon was experimental and it worked, introducing a nice texture of crumb and nutty taste.

This is such a simple thing to do that a recipe is hardly required. I will however give it below the picture!

Almond Salmon

You will need / Ingredients:
Salmon pieces
A little oil
Ground almonds
Fresh basil to serve – optional
Pre-heat the oven to 200C
Place the salmon pieces in an oven-proof dish and bake for 15 minutes
Remove from the oven, scatter the ground almonds over the oven and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes (turn up the heat to 220C if you’d really like to get a colour on the crumb)

That’s it. Simple. Enjoy with some baked baby potatoes or salad. I’ve served with some garlic and herb flatbreads above.
