Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5/fan oven 170C. Season the salmon steaks all over. Liberally butter a shallow ovenproof dish big enough to take the fish in one layer. Smear the salmon with the remaining butter.
  2. Mix the almonds, parsley and the gruyère or emmental, then press on to the top of the steaks.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the topping is crisp and golden and the salmon cooked. Serve with potatoes and a green salad or broccoli.

Very tasty and quick and easy enough to be able to do at the end of the week after a hard day at work. Such a simple recipe with so few ingredients. Well done Mary!

Exceptionally easy and impressive enough to make for an informal dinner party. I used a low fat spread instead of butter and reduced fat cheddar to keep the calorie content down, and it was absolutely delicious. I also sprinkled some bottled lemon juice over the salmon before adding the topping to help keep it moist. Be careful not to over cook it or the juices will dry up - they are lovely poured over new potatoes or green beans.

So easy - and it looks really special. A good one to impress friends! I've used cheddar when stuck - and it's still delicious.

This was ok, easy to cook but just wasn't as tasty as other recipes from Good Food.

Another favourite in our house. So quick and easy. Take care not to over cook it though, otherwise it can be a bit dry.
