HERB BASTED SALMON

24

Fresh parsley, basil, butter, olive oil, lemon zest and finely diced, toasted almonds were combined into a simple paste that was spread over the salmon before baking. The salmon was melt-in-your-mouth tender with wonderfully fresh flavors that complemented the salmon so perfectly. Not only is this recipe delicious, but it’s also very easy to prepare. Whether you are serving it for a family meal or a dinner party, your dinner guests will love it!
