After going paleo a million (okay, eight) years ago, I missed my crusted animal protein. In particular, I missed my saucy chicken parmesan and crispy crusted fish. There’s just something about a crispy outside and a tender, melt-in-your-mouth inside that wins me over each and every time.
…But then I got smart and figured out how to make crusted chicken and fish in grain-free fashion.
While a traditional crust is made using wheat flour, it can easily be made using grain-free nut flours as well! In essence, there’s no need to miss those classic recipes if you live a gluten-free lifestyle or limit your intake of grains.
Aside from the fact that this crusted salmon is completely drool-worthy, I have found it’s so easy to prepare using all whole food ingredients!
To make this Almond Crusted Salmon, I use almond flour, dried oregano, dried thyme, and whole grain mustard.
The recipe is so easy to prepare, and the result is the moistest, most delicious salmon with a delectable crust on the outside. It’s basically a salmon lover’s dream come true!
Let’s make it!
How to Make Almond Crusted Salmon:
Transfer the almond flour, salt, and dried herbs to a mixing bowl and stir everything together.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, water, and mustard.
Dredge a salmon fillet in the egg mixture, then place it flesh-side down on the flour mixture to coat.
Place the fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake to perfection!
