Almond Crusted Salmon

So, I really want to love salmon… I really do! I know how good it is for you and how simple it can be to cook it. But, I just still am struggling to find the one recipe that negates the fishy flavor and truly makes me love salmon. So, we keep experimenting with new recipes each week (I am making it my goal to make salmon once a week) and this week’s was probably my favorite out of what we have tried. I can’t say that I love salmon yet but I liked this one best so far. My husband, who does like salmon, said it was delicious!

I served it with Roasted Veggies with Tahini Sauce. Personally, I loved the side dish the most!

P.S. I have found that if I buy the high quality, wild-caught Alaskan salmon, it is definitely a vast improvement over the lesser expensive options. Another reason why we eat it only once a week – too expensive to do it more often…

BTW, this picture is pretty sad… it tastes better than the picture portrays it, I promise!


Almond Crusted Salmon

4 fillets wild-caught Alaskan salmon, skin removed
1/4-1/2 c. almond meal
honey-Dijon mustard


Rinse salmon fillets, pat dry, and sprinkle with salt/pepper to taste. Scoop a dollop of honey-Dijon mustard onto each fillet and brush to coat. Do the same to both sides. In a shallow bowl, place almond meal. Dip salmon fillets in almond meal and press to coat.

Place fillets on a pan, either covered in parchment paper or tin foil. Bake at 375 degree for about 15 minutes or until fillets flake. Serve immediately.

Husband Rating: 5 out of 10

Food for Thought: I definitely think this could be a meal for the grill. I would recommend doing it in a grilling pan simply so that the “breading” doesn’t come off when you flip the salmon.
