This is a very easy entree to put together, also very healthy with the Vitamin E coming from the almonds and niacin and Omega 3’s from the Salmon. You can use whatever herbs you have on hand like dill, thyme, basil, chives, or parsley. I switch it up based on what I have.
It is basically breaded fish with out all the frying. I love the almonds together with the fish. I like to serve this with Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms (Recipe Follows), also very good for you. Note: I cook the Green Beans first and then the get salmon prepped while they are cooking.
