How to Make It

Place the bread crumbs, almonds and garlic into a food processor or blender. Cover and process until the mixture is finely ground. Gradually pour in the olive oil while the food processor is running and process until the mixture is moist. Place the fish into a roasting pan.  Top the fish with the bread crumb mixture and press to adhere. Bake at 400°F. for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the bread crumb mixture is golden. Remove the fish from the oven, cover and keep warm. Stir the cornstarch, broth, lemon juice and thyme in a medium bowl until the mixture is smooth. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and heat to a boil. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Add the remaining butter and cook and stir until it's melted. Serve the sauce with the fish.

    A great dish made better!!

    FYI....Chefs secret...brush the salmon w/ melted butter before topping w/ the breadcrumb mixture.... the topping will adhere better and it adds a layer of richness to the dish!!

    Great way to cook salmon

    This is a fantastic way to cook salmon. Especially if you have folks that are leery about eating fish. The topping prepared with bread crumbs and fish if bought right, minus the skin, turns out to be out of the world when baked. Really good recipe. I like to cook this over and over again given the opportunity.

    Almond-Crusted Salmon with Thyme & Lemon Butter Sauce

    I'm not a huge fan of salmon, but I made it for family + guests. Everyone, including myself, loved it! It was very easy to make. Would definitely recommend it!
