{recipe} Italian almond crusted salmon

I made this almond crusted salmon twice during the month I did Whole 30. I bought 2 Costco size salmon, that was easily about 10 servings each. I bake it all at once and then portion and freeze half of it.

I love salmon and usually bake/grill them with just a simple oil, salt & pepper on it.  So this was a much different way for me to cook salmon, it was a welcome change. The main flavor of the almond crust is the Italian seasoning, so make sure that the brand you use is good quality.  I like that the recipe uses fresh lemon juice and coconut oil too.

I also served this salmon when we had company over for dinner and everyone liked it as well, everyone enjoyed it with steamy rice while I like to eat this with stir fry veggies.

  2. Ah, almond crust sounds really interesting. I normally do panko-crusted salmon but this looks good. Will definitely give this a try 🙂
