  • The creamy nutty sauce flavored with almonds, tomatillos and cilantro is perfect over salmon.

The Secret Ingredient


  • 1/3 cup raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 2 medium tomatillos, husked, rinsed and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons raw pepitas, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 6 (4 to 6 ounces each) skin-on salmon filets (1 1/4 inches thick)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Make It

Step 1

Combine almonds, evaporated milk, tomatillos, cilantro, pepitas, garlic and bouillon in a food processor; cover. Process for 30 seconds or until combined.

Step 2

Season salmon filets lightly with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Place salmon filets, skin-side-up (if it has skin) and cook for 4 minutes; turn fish over and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Fish should flake easily when tested with a fork and skin should be crispy when done.

Step 4

Serve salmon with 2 tablespoons of sauce drizzled over. Garnish with additional pepitas, if desired.
