ISO advice making almond-crusted salmon

I want to crush up some almonds and coat some sockeye salmon i have.

what would be a good binder? I want a really good adhesive i hate crusts that fall apart.


Also, should i cook it as normal? Medium heat, ss skillet, olive oil, 3 minutes a side.

Cheers guys!

No binder, just spin up your almonds real well. I have also had fine results with just sliced almonds. Just press the fish into them really well.

Start almond side down, medium heat, toast, flip, finish.

I don't see why not on the lemons. And to reiterate the guy with egg on his face (:P) you don't really need a binder. I regularly crust my salmon with macadamia nuts (heavenly, but a little pricey). I do use olive oil on the fish, but it's hardly what I'd call a binding agent.

Not blender, but food processor.

Use a chefs knife leg. Just chop them up nice and fine. I think a blender might make them too fine. A knife won't take very long though.

Got news for ya, Big: Most fish is previously frozen. It's fine, especially for someone who lives in Texas. You don't have the benefit of living literally a couple of miles away from fresh salmon like some of us; just like we don't have the luxury of living next to shrimp.
