Almond flour crusted salmon is one of those recipes you can keep in your back pocket and pull out when you failed to plan and the dinner hour is looming. I quickly discovered that I did not have to defrost the salmon pieces (because I forgot to!) before adding the almond flour crust onto them and to my surprise, they turned out amazing! Like really, really good you guys. My family devoured it, so I quickly put it onto the meal plan for later that same week.
How to make almond flour crusted salmon
The process is super simple. Combine the almond flour mixture, remove the frozen salmon pieces and dredge it through the coating. I find my hands begin to very slightly defrost the outside which makes the almond flour stick more easily and creates a nice breadcrumb like coating.
What are your thoughts on freshly made meals from the freezer? Not freezer meals, which totally have their place in simplifying a busy life (these freezer breakfast burritos are a constant staple in our house), but meals that are made from ingredients from the freezer? I am a fan! This salmon dinner can turn into a go-to salmon recipe, or one that you save for those hurried nights when you need dinner FAST.
However you choose to incorporate it, please do! Salmon is such a nutrient dense, nourishing food (hello omega-3!), I hope you can get more of it in your life with this recipe!
