  • 4 salmon fillets

  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 pound asparagus

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, parmesan cheese, chopped almonds, and chopped parsley. Mix well.

  3. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Dip the salmon fillets in the almond mixture, pressing the mixture onto both sides of the fillets to coat evenly.

  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon fillets and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

  6. While the salmon is cooking, trim the woody ends off the asparagus and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  7. When the salmon is cooked, transfer it to the baking sheet with the asparagus.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and the asparagus is tender.

  9. Serve hot and enjoy!
