Almond Crusted Salmon

I got this recipe from my boyfriends Father Mike.
The funny thing is that he REFUSED to give me this recipe for quite some time
and one day I was flipping through my cook book (one that I let him borrow) and I 
saw the recipe right in there!!! Of course in Amy fashion I called Mr. Mike on it right away!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do Matt ALWAYS has a frozen piece of Salmon
in his freezer just so he can make this! 
5 minute prep time if you use the Brussels sprouts other wise 2 minutes!

For the Fish you need:
  1. One piece of Salmon or any other fish you prefer
  2. 1 tsp Spicy Brown Mustard ( a little goes a long way)
  3. 2-3 tsp of honey ( I drizzle more at the end)
  4. 1/2 cup almonds  


  1. Spread the brown mustard first
  2. Then spread the honey ( you can use more if  you prefer)
  3. Add the almonds until it coats the fish
  4. Drizzle zig zag more honey 
  5. You can cook two ways One is on 350 for 25 -30 minutes OR 400 for 20-25 minutes. I prefer the second way that you the almonds are super toasted my boyfriend prefers them gently toasted.
For the Brussels Sprouts you need:
  1. 1/4 tsp Balsamic Vinager
  2. 1/4 tsp Apple Cider Vinager (optional)
  3. 1/4 tsp Olive Oil
  4. 1 tsp Honey
  5. Salt to taste 

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl
  2. Toss with Brussels Sprouts
  3. If you cook on 350 for your fish place the last 15 minutes the Brussels Sprouts or if you cook on 400 10-12 minutes. 
  4. I like mine a little burnt :)  


  1. I've had an almond crusted chicken recipe in my binder for months. I need to try it soon. Your salmon sounds delicious!

  2. Sounds yummy! And how funny that it was from your cookbook!

  3. The pancakes are great!! This recipe looks wonderful. I love Salmon and usually use Panko if I crust it but the almonds sound really yummy.

    PS: I also love my brussel sprouts burnt :)
