MORE FAT NOW!
Yep, you read correctly. But I’m talking about HEALTHY FATS! This super quick and easy recipe gives you a boost of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats!
My husband and I love salmon – it’s one of our staple protein sources. We usually buy family-sized organic salmon and have them slice the salmon into individual filets at the store giving us 6-8 portions at a time. That way we prepare about 3-4 meals in one shot. Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids, and almonds are high in monounsaturated fats. Yum and yum.
I prepared this recipe for my filming with the 700 Club last week. The episode should be airing sometime in late September. I had such a blast filming with the producers and can’t wait to see the finished product!! I’ll keep you posted 😉
- Salmon filets (6-8 portions)
- 1 cup ground almonds (I dry-roasted mine first)
- 1/2 cup egg white wash
- salt & pepper to taste
- other herbs optional to your taste (dill, parsley, cilantro)
- Rinse your salmon and cut it into individual sized portions. I buy family-pack organic salmon and ask them to cut it at the store for me. This usually gives between 6-8 portions.
- Place egg white in a shallow bowl (this is your egg white
- ), and almond meal in a separate shallow bowl.
- Run (
- ) the salmon through the egg whites to coat the filet, then press the salmon in the almond meal to coat it again.
- Place coated salmon filets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (this is the easiest way to avoid a messy baking sheet!). Bake at 380-400F for 13-16 minutes depending on the thickness of your filets or until just cooked through.
- Et voila! How easy was that?! Serve with a side of steamed greens, over salad, with quinoa… whatever you fancy.
