Calories 400kcal


  • 1.25 pound salmon filets (or 500 grams)
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ¼ cup coconut cream or heavy cream
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese or ⅓ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 400F/ 200C / 180C fan. 
  •  Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl (almond flour, parmesan or nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.) Place in a shallow rimmed bowl or large plate. 
  • Add coconut milk or heavy cream and eggs to a clean bowl and whisk using a fork or balloon whisk to combine. 
  • Slice the salmon into 1 inch nuggets, make about 20 pieces. Coat each piece in the crumb then egg mix then back into the crumb again. 
  •  Gently place the breaded salmon nuggets on a baking tray. Spray with oil or line with greaseproof paper and bake for 6 - 8 mins then turn and bake further 5 - 8 mins until golden.
  • Option to fry; add about an inch high of oil to a high sided skillet, heat until hot and fry for about 2 minutes on each side until cooked through and golden. Don’t over flip though or they will lose the crumb.
  • If frying place on kitchen paper to drain excess oil. If baking, enjoy straight from the tray with your favourite keto dip!
