  • 2 1/4 lbs salmon cut into 4 to 6 fillets
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp stone ground mustard or mustard of choice
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Whisk together the egg, water, and stone ground mustard in a bowl until well-combined.

  3. In a mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, sea salt, dried oregano, and thyme until well-combined.

  4. Dredge each salmon fillet in the egg mixture, then transfer it to the almond-herb mixture. Use your hands to coat the whole surface of the fish in the almond mixture.

  5. Transfer the fillets to the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and crispy.
