This roasted salmon has a layer of creamy mayo and Dijon mustard, and then topped with an almond crust. It's super easy to prepare – and can be made in advance. If like me, you often have a little spare time during the day, you can get everything ready, then leave the crusted salmon in the fridge until you are ready to roast it!

How to Make Low Carb Almond Crusted Salmon
Place two salmon fillets onto a small baking sheet. I use a quarter sheet pan lined with a silicone mat.
Finely chop the almonds (I use the mini food processor attachment of my stick blender). You can use sliced or slivered almonds, whatever you have to hand.
Mix together some mayonnaise (full fat is best), Dijon mustard, salt and pepper, then spread it over the top of the salmon.
Press the almonds onto the salmon.
Roast in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the fish is cooked to your liking.
Serve this delicious fish with some steamed green beans or broccoli to complete the meal!
