There are so many great ways to cook salmon, and I often receive requests for new ways to prepare it. Almond-Crusted Salmon is one of my staple recipes that I love, especially since my kids will eat it too. I feel so healthy eating it, and I have to admit that salmon and almonds are two of my favorite ingredients. The basic combination of ground almonds, panko breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, honey and Italian parsley flavors it to perfection and adds a great crunchy texture. You can find panko breadcrumbs in your local grocery where commercial breadcrumbs are sold.
I have never put mussels on my blog before, but since my 9-year-old, Zachary, eats them, I thought, why not? These Grilled Mussels with Lemon and Italian Parsley are so easy, prepared in under 30 minutes. If you don’t want to grill them, you can bake them in the oven at 500F for about 5 minutes or until shells open. This recipe is light and flavorful and perfect with crusty French bread and a salad (and glass of white wine for me).
