  6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  7. While the salmon is baking, place all cashew cream ingredients in a food processor, blender, or Nutribullet. Mix until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. Add more water if needed and mix again. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Take the salmon out of the oven. Drizzle each filet with about 2 tablespoons of cashew cream.
