Almond-Crusted Baked Salmon

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 😉

 

    Ingredients:

  • 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)

 

    Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Place egg white in a shallow bowl (this is your egg white
  3. ), and almond meal in a separate shallow bowl.
  4. Run (
  5. ) the salmon through the egg whites to coat the filet, then press the salmon in the almond meal to coat it again.
  6. 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.
  7. Et voila! How easy was that?! Serve with a side of steamed greens, over salad, with quinoa… whatever you fancy.
