  • 2 filets Salmon, wild-caught
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil (or Avocado oil)
  • Sea and pepper (just enough to season the fish)
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley, dried (or 1 Tbsp. fresh if you have it!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dill, dried
  • 2 teaspoon Maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup Raw almonds, chopped (or any nut/seed you like)
  • 1 small Lemon, cut into wedges for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  

  2. Run a little water over your filets and pat them dry (optional).

  3. In a glass baking dish, drizzle a little olive oil.  Place your salmon filets skin-down.  Brush the remaining olive oil over the top of the filets.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, just enough to season them.  

  4. Chop up your almonds and set them to the side.  You can also throw them in a magic bullet or blender if you prefer a less coarse crust.

  5. In a small dish, mix together the dijon, parsley, dill, maple syrup, and avocado oil.  Spread it over the fish, coating each one well.  

  6. Sprinkle the almonds over the fish, creating the crust. 

  7. Bake for 12-17 minutes, checking every few minutes until the fish is cooked to your liking.  

  8. Before serving, squeeze a little lemon juice over the fish (optional).  Serve with fresh veggies, it went great with steamed broccoli! 

Recipe Notes

No raw almonds or allergic to almonds?  Try using another nut or seed you like.  If you are eating grains you can also substitute Rice Chex- my absolute favorite crusting ingredient for crispy gluten-free, corn-free toppings! I buy my raw almonds in bulk to save money.  

Maple Syrup: I buy my maple syrup on Amazon to save money.  I like the dark, robust flavored ones.  Coombs Family Farms and Hidden Springs Organic Vermont Maple Syrup are both excellent. 

Sea Salt as a kitchen staple:
