Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 small, wild-caught Alaskan salmon fillets
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 cups spinach
  • Lemon juice for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the almond flour, parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Blend until all is well-combined.

  3. Dredge the salmon on both sides through the almond mixture.
  4. Fry salmon in the oil for 5 minutes on each side or until cooked throughout.
  5. Serve over bed of fresh greens, and top with fresh lemon juice.

Notes

  • For a crispy crust, make sure the salmon fillets are patted dry before dredging them in the almond mixture.
  • You can also bake the salmon instead of pan-frying it. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) ,and bake the salmon fillets for 12–15 minutes or until cooked through.
