Almond-crusted salmon is the perfect protein-packed main to pair with your vegetables! Using almonds, honey, mustard, and more makes this a flavorful salmon recipe that is perfect for meal prep!



4-6 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, thawed if frozen

1/3 cup roasted, unsalted almonds, finely chopped (see Notes 1)

2 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (preferably stone-ground)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the almonds, honey, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, oil, pepper flakes, and parsley, and mix evenly. Set aside.

On a clean cutting board, pat dry the salmon with a paper towel. Spoon the almond coating evenly on one side of each salmon fillet and transfer the salmon to the baking sheet (coating side facing up). Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature of the salmon is 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

Serve with your favorite vegetables and starch for a tasty, balanced meal!


  1. Almonds can be finely chopped by hand or using a food processor (or a high-powered blender).
  2. If you are running low on marinade for the salmon (depending on how heavily you coat it), you can thin it out with a little bit more of the oil and a small amount of lemon juice.
