Mustard Crusted Salmon (DF & GF)

This paleo mustard crusted salmon replaces the typical gluten filled coating with protein filled almond flour for a healthier alternative.

Paleo, gluten free, and Whole30 compliant. Yes, it’s true. Coat this mustard crusted salmon with a mix of dijon mustard and ground mustard seeds. Then sprinkle with almond flour and press gently to form a crust.

If you’re doing a Whole30 reset, be sure to use a Whole30 compliant mustard.

Homemade almond flour – if you want to try your hand at it – is simple to make and will save you money. Grab a cup of almonds, throw them in the food processor and pulse for just a few minutes. Stop once they have turned into powder and before they turn into almond butter.
