This simple, gluten free Easy Almond Crusted Salmon with Parsley makes a quick and delicious family meal idea. Also great for entertaining!
There are so many ways of preparing salmon, but crusted salmon is one of my favourite. It takes very little time to make and is perfect for when you are hosting a dinner party. But most importantly, this method produces really delicious results. You can use all sorts of ingredients to make the crust. For me crunchy works best so today I am sharing a deliciously zesty Easy Almond Crusted Salmon with Parsley recipe.
In this simple recipe I used wild salmon, but it’s perfectly alright to use farmed salmon if you prefer or can’t get the wild variety.
Wild salmon has a more intense flavour and colour than the farmed variety. I does cost more but it is absolutely worth every penny.
How to make Almond Crusted Salmon with Parsley
This crusted salmon contains only 5 ingredients (plus some seasoning) and it’s a breeze to prepare. Just make a quick marinade, spread over the top of the fish and set aside for an hour. Then scatter the almond flakes over the top and bake for 15-20 minutes. It’s a fantastic dish to make for a special occasion, great as a family dish and perfect to add to your party menu.
The simple marinade keeps the salmon moist while the almond flakes give it a sweetish, pleasant bit of crunch. Serve with a nice light salad, leafy vegetables, roast potatoes or a simple side dish of petits pois (heated only, as they lose their sweetness when boiled). Enjoy!
Cooking times may vary depending on the size of your fish, but try not to overcook it as it may become a little dry.
