I made this for my husband and I and it was so good!! and easy, and quick!! The almonds really make it special. I sauteed the salmon for less than 2 minutes so it didn't overcook and it was perfect. It would be nice for casual company but then the prep is all last minute.

Quick, simple, and delicious. I make this often and have served it to guests with happy results. I've also passed the recipe on to others and they love it too.
