“I am sick *cough* so I am putting honey on everything. Don't judge me. I dredged salmon in honey and then freshly ground raw almonds, and then I pan fried in vegan butter. Again, don't judge me. It was lightly sweet, crunchy and made me feel better about feeling so miserable *hacking cough* I then went on the web and found this recipe at http://nordicfoodliving.com/baked-salmon-with-honey-and-almonds/. You can do it their way or use the ground raw almonds like I did. I also did not use salt. Judge me now.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 salmon fillet, with skin (700 to 800 g or 1.5 to 2 lb)
  • 70 g almonds (2.5 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • salt (optional)


  1. Place the salmon in an oven proof dish, skin side down.
  2. Coarsely chop the almonds (I ground raw, unsalted almonds into coarse meal).
  3. Using a spoon, spread honey on the fillet.
  4. Season with salt (optional) and then sprinkle chopped almonds on top.
  5. Bake the salmon fillet for about 15 to 20 minutes at 200 C (400 F). The salmon is finished when its meat is light pink, and the meat flakes apart. Warning: pan frying sucks. Do not use tongs. Repeat: do not use tongs!
  6. Serving suggestion: Serve with fava beans and a nice chianti. Alternatively, a salad and fresh bread.
