4 Alaskan salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon maple syrup (sugar-free or low-carb option can be used)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
Lemon wedges for serving
Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a shallow dish, combine the chopped pecans, almond flour, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard and maple syrup.
Brush each salmon fillet with the Dijon mustard and maple syrup mixture, making sure to coat both sides.
Dip each coated salmon fillet into the pecan and almond flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the crust.
Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the salmon fillets to the skillet, skin side down if applicable. Sear for about 2 minutes on each side to create a crispy crust.
Transfer the skillet with the salmon fillets to the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
Serve the pecan-crusted Alaskan salmon with lemon wedges and garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
