Quick salmon with a crunchy cheesy crust

January 6, 2014
Who would have thought this combination of flavors would work so brilliantly!!  It’s fast, easy and gorgeous.
Serves 4
4x 6 oz salmon fillets, skin removed if you prefer
1/2 cup softened butter
4 tbsp slivered almonds
4 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 cup Gruyere cheese, coarsely grated
Preheat the oven to 375 F
Season the salmon all over.
Liberally butter a shallow ovenproof dish big enough to take the fish in one layer.
Smear the salmon with the remaining butter
Mix together the almonds, parsley and Gruyere cheese, then press some on top of each piece of salmon.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the topping is crisp and golden and the salmon is cooked.
Serve with baby buttered potatoes and a green salad.
