Salmon w/ Almond Herb Crust

This is another recipe where I'm unsure of the source. I had a text printout in the pile of things I wish to try at some point. So, try it I did.

Salmon w/ Almond Herb Crust
(source unknown)

4 six-ounce salmon filets
1/2 cup toasted almonds
1 1/2 tsp basil
1 TBSP chilled butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Coarsely chop almonds in food processor. Add basil, butter, salt, and pepper and blend well. Place filets on light greased baking sheet. Top each filet with almond mixture. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

Notes: As usual, I can't exactly follow directions. So, I cooked this on my cedar roasting plank at the lesser temperature of 325 degrees, which should have taken about 20 minutes (except for the fact that the salmon was stll frozen in the middle). Even so, this proved a ridiculously easy and tasty recipe, and a nice alternative to my usual dijon sauce.

Except for the issue of the salmon still being frozen (which made the doneness a little less even I think), this came out really well and was very tasty indeed. I'll be looking forward to having this again with fully thawed salmon. *grin*
