Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds salmon , cut into 4 fillets
  • 3/4 cup roasted salted almonds , finely chopped or coarsely ground in the food processor
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil , divided use
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Optional garnish: sliced green onions and sesame seeds

Instructions

  • For the sauce: mix together the honey, soy sauce and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • For the salmon: Mix together the almonds and sesame seeds and pour onto a plate.
  • Brush one of the tablespoons of olive oil evenly over the salmon fillets.
  • Press the top of each salmon fillet into the almond mixture. Season the top of each fillet with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Place each salmon fillet, crust side down, into the pan and cook for 5 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure the crust isn't burning. Flip and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until salmon is at desired level of doneness. The length of time it takes to cook will depend in part on the thickness of the fillet.
  • After the salmon is cooked through, transfer it to a serving platter and pour the reserved honey garlic sauce over the top. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
