Almonds and salmon go together perfectly!
Heat butter and 1/2 tablespoon of the oil together in a large skillet over low heat. Add chopped sweet onion, basil, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and slightly caramelized, 30 to 45 minutes. Stir in lime juice and keep warm.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375ºF. Grease the bottom of a baking dish with remaining 1 teaspoon oil; set aside.
Put almond meal on a large plate; set aside.
Season salmon with salt and pepper. Spread honey mustard over the top of each salmon fillet, then gently roll each in the almond meal, pressing to make sure it sticks. Arrange salmon in prepared baking dish in a single layer and bake until salmon is done to your liking, 15 to 25 minutes.
Transfer salmon to plates, top with caramelized onions, garnish with green onions, and serve.
