Paleo Walnut Honey Dijon Encrusted Salmon

Paleo Walnut Honey Dijon Encrusted Salmon:

*This is my go-to salmon recipe for the weekdays or for company. I have made it for my husband, parents, and friends, and they all tell me how amazing and delicious this recipe is. It even looks impressive when plated! The best part is it’s SO easy and quick to make! I made this for my parents the last time we were at the beach and they said it was the best salmon they have ever had!


-1 Tbsp. Molasses

-3 Tbsp. Honey

-3 Tbsp. coconut oil

-3 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard

-1/4 cup of chopped walnuts (crushed)

-2 Tbsp. almond flour

-1/4 tsp. Himalayan Sea Salt

-4 Salmon filets (best quality possible)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a large baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil, sprayed with nonstick spray.
  2. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds and combine with your molasses, honey, and mustard. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place your walnuts in a plastic bag on a cutting board and bang it with a hammer or something similar until well crushed (almost into a meal like texture).
  4. In a separate large bowl, combine your crushed walnuts, almond flour, and salt and mix well.
  5. Then dip your salmon filets, first in your liquid mixture and then coat with your dry mixture. Place your filets on your baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes (or until the tops are golden and encrusted). Enjoy!
