Parmesan Crusted Salmon

Parmesan Crusted Salmon

Prep a healthy, satisfying meal all on ONE pan with this lemon Parmesan crusted salmon sheet pan dinner! Creamy yogurt pairs with the bright flavor of lemon juice and fresh thyme to give this dish a Mediterranean-inspired flavor. But, it’s the savory, salty crust of Parmesan cheese and almond flour that takes this dinner to a new level of deliciousness for me!

For my vegetables, I chose to roast some baby potatoes and chopped fennel bulb to make this meal hearty and ultra-comforting. Most of all, I love the natural sweetness that roasted baby carrots bring to this savory sheet pan dinner! But, feel free to swap out any veggies that you like.

Ingredients

Salmon:
  • 1 Tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 oz salmon filet
  • 2 Tbsp yogurt of choice
  • Veggies:
  • 2 tsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup baby carrots
  • 1/2 cup baby potatoes
  • 1 cup fennel bulb chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1/2 orange juiced
  • salt, to taste
  • Procedure

  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Add salmon filet to a tray lined with parchment or foil, along with baby carrots, baby potatoes, and fennel.
  • In a bowl, mix yogurt, lemon juice, and thyme together. Spread on top of salmon filet.
  • In another bowl, combine almond flour and grated parmesan and sprinkle on top of salmon filet.
  • Drizzle veggies with oil and fresh orange juice. Sprinkle on parsley, season to taste with salt, and dollop a bit of ginger paste onto chopped fennel bulb. Toss to coat.
  • Cover salmon with a foil tent to prevent filet from drying out in the oven. (If you prefer your salmon cooked more medium-rare than well-done, cook salmon for just 8-10 minutes on a separate pan from your vegetables.)
  • Roast for 25 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
