Hazelnut Crusted Salmon
1 ½ - 2 lbs salmon , sliced into 4 pieces
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon mustard
½ cup hazelnuts
¼ cup hazelnut flour
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
2-3 tablespoons hazelnut oil
PREP. Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the pieces of salmon evenly on top.
DRESS. Whisk together the lemon juice, honey, and mustard. Drizzle mixture over the salmon.
CRUST. In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts, flour, salt, pepper, and hazelnut oil until hazelnuts are coarsely ground and all ingredients are combined. Alternately, finely chop the hazelnuts and combine ingredients with a fork. Pat the hazelnut mixture onto the salmon pieces until they are well covered.
BAKE. Bake for 15 minutes on 375°, then broil for an additional 2 minutes on 500°. Hazelnuts should be golden brown and the salmon should be fully cooked (should flake easily along the white lines). Serve immediately.
