  • Sheet pan
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Parchment Paper or Aluminum Foil


  • 2-4 6-8oz center cut salmon filets
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup Homemade Almond Meal *See note below
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wrap a baking sheet in foil or place a sheet of parchment paper on top. Place salmon over the parchment paper or foil.
  • Brush 1 tbsp. of dijon mustard on top of each salmon filet.
  • In a bowl, combine the almond flour, olive oil, paprika, and salt and pepper. Using your hands, toss until it is all combined and coated in the oil.
  • Top the salmon with the almond flour mixture so that is evenly over the top in a thin layer (you may not need to use all of your almond mixture.. don’t cake it on there).
  • Bake at 400 in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately.


*you can either purchase store bought almond flour. If you do this, buy the almond flour from Whole Almonds, not blanched almonds. Bob’s Red Mill has a good one. Or, take a cup of raw almonds (not blanched) and place them in a food processor or blender and grind them until they are finely ground into a coarse powder.
