  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 4 filets 1x


  • 4 (4 oz) Salmon Filets
  • ¾ cup Almond Flour
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • Sea salt to taste ( I used ½ tsp sea salt)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 3 ½ tbsp melted ghee
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic powder, sea salt and melted ghee. Mix together with a fork. It should turn into a crumbly paste. 
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the salmon filets on top of the paper. 
  4. Drizzle the 2 tbsp. of olive oil over the top of each filet and use a brush to coat each filet.
  5. Transfer the cheese mixture on top of each filet. Use a generous amount and pat down until the mixture covers the entire top of the filet. Repeat for each filet.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Serve with your favorite veggie or side salad. 
  8. Enjoy!


  • The olive oil will act as glue and will help the almond flour and cheese mixture stick. If you need additional help, refer to the cooking video above with a step by step. 
  • This will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
