Almond Cacao Crusted Salmon

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 10 minutes   Rated:

'Chocolate and salmon' I hear you cry? Remember that although BrewChoc is cacao, it has no added sweeteners or dairy solids like chocolate and so is quite amazing in this savoury crust. This recipe would also be amazing on top of chicken or lamb. Let your imagination go cacao crust crazy. This is truly delicious and quite perfect for a celebration type meal. Serve in very small pieces as it is quite rich, perhaps as an appetiser. Then again, add heaps of salad greens and some elegant pomme frites and you are pretty well at main meal status. Enjoy...(not kidding...go and do!!)
