Salmon Baked with Lemon-Almond Crust

WIN_20160407_15_02_16_Pro (2)

Salmon is so flavorful. This is a new recipe that everyone raved about and I hope you enjoy it too! 2 -4-6 ounce Wild Caught Fresh Salmon, one lemon zest and juice, black pepper, 1/4 cup crushed almonds. Squeeze lemon juice on the top of each Salmon Fillet (skin side down) coat the top of Salmon with black pepper and crushed Almonds.

Place in a non stick baking dish @ 400 F and bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown and you see Salmon has baked to your liking. I like to serve either rice or a vegetable roasted medley. Very hearty and nutritious meal.

Hope you like it!
