  2. In a large skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil.
  3. Stir in the almonds, the onion, cilantro, garlic, anchovies and cayenne and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the salmon to the skillet and spoon some of the almond mixture on top.
  5. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  6. Cover the salmon and cook over moderate heat for 5 minutes.
  7. Reduce the heat to moderately low and cook until the salmon is just opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes longer.
  8. Meanwhile, (if using the pasta) in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the linguine until al dente; drain and transfer to a serving platter. Spoon the almond sauce and salmon on top and serve at once.

This was really good but I didn't think there was enough onion or cilantro. I used a small onion for this and I wished I used a bigger one. I did love the ancovies and the garlic cloves that was a really nice touch to it.
