The amount of ingredients has been changed. Keep in mind:
  • Cooking for more people takes longer time
  • Be careful with salty ingredients and spices, you should add to taste towards the end
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Lightly toast almonds and sesame seeds, either in oven or stove top in skillet.
  • Combine almonds, sesame seeds, cilantro and coriander seeds in food processor. Process until combined and no large pieces remain.
  • Lightly beat egg and combine with flour to form a paste. 
  • Brush tops of salmon fillets with paste. Dip salmon, paste-side down, into crust mixture and press down so crust sticks.
