Cheesy Lemon Buttered Salmon

I am always looking for ways to change up Salmon.  It is such a good protein for you, ideally I would like to have it a couple times a week, so I try to spice it up to keep my taste buds watering.  We had this tonight and it was really good!

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.

2 salmon filets (About 4 ounces each) thawed (if frozen).

1 ounce cream cheese
1 large garlic clove, minced
zest of 1 lemon

Slice a "pocket" on the top of each filet- stop the cut 1/2 inch from each edge.  If the fish is thin be sure to cut at an angle.  Mix all the stuffing ingredients, spoon into pockets.  Sprinkle salt over the fish.

2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Mix topping ingredients, sprinkle over stuffed salmon fillets.  Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, until salmon is flaky.  I put it under the broiler for 3 minutes to lightly brown the top.
