Hazelnut Crusted Salmon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

This is a german recipe from Horst Mager from the Rheinlander, Portland, Oregon. There are quite a few old german recipes that list salmon as an ingredient because salmon used to be plentiful on the Rhine River before it became polluted.

A very simple and quick way to prepare delicious salmon. Hazelnuts are very soft, so I just put some in a mortar and pestle and ground them up a bit (you could also use a plastic baggie) and skipped the flour. I also squeezed on lemon juice both before and after cooking (so used twice the amount called for). A very pretty, easy, healthy, and tasty dish! Thanks for posting.
