As I promised in my last post, here is the recipe for that delicious Almond Crusted Chilean Salmon with Fruit Salsa I made at the Underground Dinner Party.

The Chilean merquén spice called for can be ordered online from Amazon, or you can substitute with hot smoked paprika or chipotle chile powder.

If you are making the salsa ahead, do not add the raspberries until right before serving.

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse/chop until the ingredients are finely chopped, and blended.
