Almond Crusted Maple Salmon with Kale, Orange and Maple Salad
I busted out some more of my favourite healthy flavours- crunchy nutty almonds, sweet maple, zippy mustard, sprightly orange and hearty kale to round out the dinner time roster. This maple salmon was sure to be a hit.
Servings 2 people
- 8 cups kale leaves finely chopped and washed
- 2 oranges segmented
- 1 oz sliced almonds toasted
Glaze and Salmon:
Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Mix together the mustard, maple, zest and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
Lightly season the salmon filets with salt and pepper and brush with the glaze.
Sprinkle generously with the almond crust and drizzle each with a teaspoon of olive oil.
Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through.
Once cooked, carefully lift the fish from the skin and discard the skin.
Toss the salad with a few more tablespoons of dressing to taste, and arrange on plates with the orange and almonds.
Top with the cooked salmon filets.
