I love this simple, yet elegant and easy weeknight entree. I served it with roasted green beans, sweet potato french fries and an heirloom tomato salad.

1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 (1-ounce) slices white bread, torn
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray
4 lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor; add 1/4 teaspoon salt. Process until finely chopped.

Sprinkle salmon with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Top fillets evenly with breadcrumb mixture; press gently to adhere. Place fillets on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with lemon wedges.
