Preheat oven to 400°.
Heat the olive oil in a small sauté pan and sauté the sliced almonds until lightly toasted and just fragrant.
Remove pan from heat and stir in bread crumbs, thyme, lemon rind, and olives.
Prepare a baking sheet or pan with oil, parchment, or foil to prevent sticking, and place the salmon in the pan.
Lightly press 1/4 of the crumb mixture on the top surface of each salmon fillet.
Bake the salmon for 12 to 15 minutes until the salmon is just opaque in the center.
A heart-healthy food, almonds are chock full of nutrients, including folic acid, protein, and fiber, but it's the vitamin E that really scores an A. In the food world, only one form of vitamin E, alpha-tocopherol, can meet your body's needs and protect it from free radicals. But don't reach for the synthetic supplements just yet. Your body craves the alpha-tocopherol found in natural sources, including almonds and olive oil, because your body processes it more effectively. Whether snacking on them whole, cooking with them, or sprinkling slices over some of your favorite dishes, incorporate almonds into your diet to enhance your health.
