Healthy fats and proteins are crucial parts of a balanced diet. And salmon delivers on both macros. We’ve even added our own extra dash of protein! This salmon is coated with a crust of our Protein Flakes to make sure you reach your body’s daily protein needs.


  • Preheat the oven to 180° C.
  • In a large bowl, mix the Protein Flakes, 1 tbsp olive oil, chopped almonds, thyme, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pat the salmon filet with paper towels (if needed). Place on a sheet of parchment paper on a baking tray. Brush with the mustard. Sprinkle the protein crust on top and press it on firmly.
  • Halve the brussels sprouts and the carrots. Lay them onto the parchment paper next to the salmon.
  • Drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil over the vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme.
  • Cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with a small salad and a lemon wedge.
  • Enjoy!

How do I saute salmon in a pan?

Die Pfanne stark erhitzen und ein hitzebeständiges Öl hineingeben. Sonnenblumen- oder Rapsöl zum Beispiel. Den Lachs mit der Hautseite in die Pfanne geben. Die Temperatur herunterdrehen. Das Filet für 8-10 Minuten auf mittlerer Hitze garen. Heat the pan on high heat until it's fully hot. Add a heat-resistant oil: sunflower, rapeseed, or coconut are all great. Put the salmon into the pan skin-side down. Turn the temperature down immediately to medium. Then cook the salmon filet for 8-10 minutes over medium heat.
