Honey-Almond Crusted Salmon


This is one of my favorite recipes for salmon. I intended to make pistachio crusted salmon that night, but didn’t realize I had almonds instead. The key here is to not burn the almonds when you are cooking the fish in the pan – keep an eye on it!


  • 1 Filet Salmon, No Skin
  • 1/2 Cup Almonds processed or finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Sesame Seeds
  • 2 TBS Honey
  • 1 TBS Soy Sauce
  • 1 TBS Olive Oil
  • 1 Scallion Chopped (Or Chives)


  1. Clean Salmon, pat dry, and coat with olive oil then season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix almonds and sesame seeds in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, mix honey and soy sauce.
  4. Dip the flesh side (the side the skin was NOT on) into the almond mixture.
  5. Heat a sauté pan on medium heat with 1 TBS oil until hot.
  6. Place Salmon, almond side down on pan and cook for approximately 3 minutes.
  7. Flip Salmon and cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Place salmon on a plate, and drizzle with soy sauce/honey mixture.
  9. Top with scallions and serve.
