Thai Crusted Baked Salmon

by Liz N on May 17, 2012

When I cook meals and design recipes, I tend to favour simple combinations of few ingredients.    Today’s Gourmet Garden Blogger-Come-Chef  competition recipe has only three ingredients, five, if you count the accompanying greens.

Gourmet Garden Thai Chilli Paste, natural almonds (30g packet) and fresh skinless salmon….

 

Grind the almonds until coarse and add a generous dob of Gourmet Garden Thai Chilli paste and mix thoroughly until mixture is just wet.

Press the mixture on the salmon fillet and bake, covered for twenty minutes at 170 degrees.  Then remove cover and bake a further two minutes.  You will have enough mixture for two fillets using a 30g packet of almonds.

 

Serve with a big heaping pile of steamed greens and you have a simple, yet extremely tasty meal full of good fats and very filling to boot.
I’m seriously in love with this meal – I can’t wait to bake it again as salmon is one of my “desert island foods”.

Have you got a desert island food – if I had an oven and some thai paste on my island, I’d be set!

This is my sort of recipe! This looks absolutely wonderful – I have never cooked salmon like this but now am very keen to do so.

I ADORE salmon and try to eat it regularly to ward of dementia. I’ll be trying this recipe for sure.

oooh, on a roll girl! another yummy looking dish.
May I make a suggestion? Perhaps, at the end of the photos, put all the ingredients and directions in one spot for easy printing. Just a thought! ;-)
(Not saying to delete the info under the pics; just makes it easy to print when the whole recipe is at one spot.)

Hi Raechelle,

I think there could be a plug in for that – I haven’t ever thought that my recipes were worthwhile printing out – so thanks for the suggestion :)

Looks really good Liz. The fact that there’s only three ingredients makes it even more enticing.

This looks good! I usually simply pan fry salmon (without oil) and eat it with lemon and grated carrots!
