One of the things I will be trying to incorporate in 2015 is adding nuts into our meals- not just a handful on the side or as a snack, but added into the actual meal.
Tonight was an experiment, and we're super happy with the results. I had some leftover ground hazelnuts from the hazelnut eggnog loaf I made earlier today, so thought I should play with those. This recipe made everyone except my second son very happy.
500g. package of salmon
1 tbsp of ground hazelnuts
1 tbsp of your favorite fresh herb blend- I used garlicky-dill topper from Victorian Epicure
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter.
Soften the butter, mix in the nuts and herbs, and spread over your fish. Pop into a 400*F preheated oven on a foil-covered baking sheet. and bake until the fish flakes easily- mine cooked for 20 minutes exactly.
We served this with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed mixed vegetables, and for dessert ate sliced apples and eggnog loaf.
