  • 1½ teaspoons honey
  • 1½ teaspoons olive oil
Crumbs:
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ bunch fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • dash black pepper
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • (or any combination of nuts totalling ½ cup)
Dressing:
  • ¼ cup oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.

  3. Combine all marinade ingredients. Pour over salmon.
  4. Combine all crumb ingredients in a food processor. Blend until just combined. Crumbs can be prepared in advance and frozen until needed. Any leftover crumbs can also be frozen and used on individual slices of salmon. Top salmon with a generous layer of crumbs.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes. After 10 minutes, place a loose piece of aluminum foil over the fish so that the crumbs don’t burn.
