Recipe: Coconut Crusted Salmon

I wanted to add some more crunch and colour to my usual crusted fish fillet - enter, coconut flakes!

Coconut Crusted Salmon


2 salmon fillets
1/4 cup almond or coconut flour
1 egg
1t cumin
1t paprika
1t dried oregano (or other preferred herbs)
2T coconut flakes
Salt & pepper as desired


1. Preheat oven to around 175 degrees Celsius. Line a shallow baking tray with foil.

2. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg until yolk and white is combined.

3. In another shallow bowl, combine flour, flakes and seasonings.

4. Dip fillets in egg, and then seasonings. Lie coated fillets on baking tray. Top with leftover egg mixture and more seasoning/flakes.

5. Bake until coating is golden brown & fish is cooked through (approx. 25 minutes, depending on oven).

Serve with a leafy green salad and sliced tomato, with a lemon wedge. Classy.

Really like your blog. Great recipes! I shared this with my wife, and she was pretty pumped. Saw one of your comment on paleohacks If you get a chance check out the robb wolf pod cast there was pretty good discussion on there about crohn's and colitis and their relation to grains.

Thanks Anon!! I have been collecting Rob's podcasts (or links to them, at any rate) for a while now, but just don't seem to fit audio engagement into my day very easily. I'll be packing my iPod with them for my trips to and from Ottawa though, so I'll be sure to start with the one that explores Crohn's. Cheers, and I'm glad you like my blog! :)
