How to Make It
Thread the salmon onto the skewers, dividing evenly. Brush lightly with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside in the refrigerator. This can be done several hours in advance.
Preheat an oven to 350°F. Place the almonds on a baking sheet and bake until light golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Chop the almonds coarsely.
Preheat an outdoor grill. Grill the salmon skewers 4-inches from the heat source until pink and almost firm to the touch, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill. Place the skewers on a platter and top with the almond salsa verde. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately.
