Can you make a delicious Sunday Supper recipe by using only 5 ingredients or less? At our house, reality is that most of our dishes are made with 5 ingredients or less. I am a true believer that the flavor of each ingredient should stand out in every recipe. This delicious Honey Almond Salmon is the perfect example. I have served this dish for our family and have also prepared it while entertaining. It is not only delicious but a beautiful dish to serve tableside.

Judging by all the fantastic recipes by our Sunday Supper Contributors, I am not alone. There are so many great recipes that are simple, delicious and only require a couple of ingredients.

Serving Size: 6

Almond Honey Glazed Salmon #SundaySupper


  • 1 salmon fillet
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup almonds, slivered
  • broccoli spears (optional)
  • lemon (optional)
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Place the salmon on baking sheet or oven proof platter.
  3. Mix olive oil, honey and garlic in a small bowl.
  4. Brush the honey and garlic mixture on the salmon fillet.
  5. Place a thin layer of almonds on the salmon.
  6. If adding broccoli, add it to the side of the salmon and sprinkle with olive oil.
  7. Season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
  8. Bake for approximately 35 minutes. You will have to adjust time depending on the thickness of your piece of salmon. Test the center of the fish to make sure that it is done. Almonds will look crispy and toasted.
  9. Garnish with lemon is desired.

I love salmon. This year we are going to fish for silvers off the dock close by. I would love to catch a fresh fish, bring it home, and make this. YUM!


Dionne Baldwin April 30, 2014 at 7:54 pm

I am always looking for new ways to prepare salmon. For some reason I am not creative when it comes to fish but I really like almonds so this is going to be at the top of my inspiration list.


Renee May 1, 2014 at 7:17 pm

You sure are a master at salmon dishes. Your love for it shines through with each of your recipes.


Christy @ Confessions of a Culinary Diva May 9, 2014 at 8:24 pm

This was one of my favorite weeks since joining – it is amazing to see all the fabulous creations with 5 ingredients or less, and makes me embarrassed that we ever consider take-out.
