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

SEASON salmon filets lightly with salt and pepper.

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.

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