Filet of Salmon with Almonds, Cilantro and Parmesan

Ingredients & Method

Make a pesto

½ cup fresh chopped cilantro

2 Tablespoons chopped Marcona Almonds

2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese

Zest of 1/2 – 1 lemon, to taste

Adjust seasoning to your needs and taste

Method: Combine in a bowl minutes before cooking the salmon 

Cook the Salmon

4 – 4 ounce filets of salmon

Cooking Spray

Method: Start by spraying the skillet with cooking spray. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Sauté salmon filets at medium heat on each side. When the salmon is almost done baste the salmon with the pesto. Cover for 1 minute then finish cooking to your desired temperature.

I like to serve this with a wild rice or brown rice salad with cucumber, tomatoes, green onions, lemon and Italian parsley.
