Everything Crusted Salmon

These everything crusted salmon bites are such a delicious way to switch up your fish game! They’re coated in a simple crust made of almond flour and everything seasoning, and baked until golden brown.

They taste delicious with a simple homemade chipotle mayo, or your favorite store bought dipping sauce!

If I had to choose one staple spice in my kitchen, its everything but the bagel seasoning. You can seriously do SO MUCH with it, and a little goes a long way! It’s delicious on toast, on your eggs, over roasted veggies, and especially as a crust over salmon.

If you’ve been following my stories for the last few months, you’ll know my latest snack obsession is sliced cucumbers with dairy-free cream cheese, bagel seasoning, and a little sriracha- try it, trust me 🙂

All of my snacking had me thinking, why don’t I cook with this seasoning more? Cue these little guys.

How to make everything crusted salmon bites

CUBE YOUR SALMON: Start off with a skinless fillet of salmon, and cut it into 1″ cubes

COAT YOUR BITES: The coating before the crust is made from a mixture of mayo, dijon mustard, and a little lemon juice. This combination adds SO much flavor, and helps the salmon stay juicy.

CRUST YOUR SALMON: Once you have your base coat, you dip each salmon piece in a mixture of almond flour and everything seasoning. This crust mixture keeps it light, and naturally gluten-free!

BAKE YOUR SALMON: Bake the bites for about 12-15 minutes, and let them rest for 2 minutes before serving. I love squeezing fresh lemon juice once they’re out of the oven, and pairing them with a spicy sauce.

NOTES:
Most “everything but the bagel seasonings,” especially the Trader Joe’s one, is heavily salted so I don’t suggest adding salt to your breading mixture!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut your salmon into 1″ cubes and season lightly with salt & pepper.
  • Mix the mayo, mustard, and lemon juice in a bowl, and toss in the salmon cubes until each piece is evenly coated.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour and everything seasoning. Dip each piece of of salmon into the breading mixture to coat each side, then layer on your baking sheet. Repeat with remaining salmon.
  • Drizzle the bites with olive oil, and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the crust starts to brown. Let them rest for 2 minutes before touching.
  • Squeeze some fresh lemon juice once they’re ready, and serve with your favorite dipping sauce!

  1. hi! thank you for sharing the recipe. what are some alternatives to sub for mayo? thank you!

    • Hey Shannon, you can either dip them in a whisked egg, just the dijon thinned out with a little olive oil, or Greek yogurt! You can also opt for a vegan mayo if eggs are problematic 🙂
