Salmon With Brown Butter, Almonds, and Green Beans

posted by 6 years ago


4 Tbs. unsalted butter, divided

1 1/4 lbs. skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces

Coarse salt & fresh ground black pepper

1 lb. green beans, trimmed and halved crosswise

1/4 c. sliced almonds

2 Tbs. capers


Heat 1 Tbs. of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season the salmon with salt & pepper. Cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side; transfer to plates. Meanwhile, fill a second skillet with ½ inch of water, bring to a boil, and add ¼ teaspoon salt. Add the green beans, cover, and steam until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes; drain and transfer to plates. Wipe out the green bean skillet and heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the almonds and cook, stirring frequently, until the almonds and butter are golden brown (but not burned), 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the capers. Spoon over the fish and green beans. (Serves: 4)
