1 tbsp. olive oil

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup almonds

1/2 lemon

1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1/2 tsp parsley

2 6 oz. Atlantic salmon fillets

2 tbsp. butter

1/2 shallot

2 handfuls frisee


1. Start by making your almond pesto. In a food processor, pulse olive oil, garlic and almonds until a paste forms. Add in the juice of half a lemon, salt and parsley. Set aside.

2. Pat salmon fillets dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat up a lightly oiled pan until very hot and place salmon in skin side down. Depending on the thickness of your salmon, cook for about 4-6 minutes.

3. Flip the salmon and add butter to the pan and when melted, baste the salmon for a few minutes. Slice into the thickest part of the salmon - it should still be a little rare inside. Serve salmon over a bed of frisee. Add a dollop of your almond pesto to the top followed by some sliced shallots and slivered almonds.

Bon Appetit!
