Macadamia & Coconut Crusted Salmon

The ideal light meal, this crusted salmon is as tasty as it is nutritious. Serve with a mixed salad for a healthy and fresh meal the whole family will love.

  3.  Beat egg in a small shallow bowl.
  4.  Dip salmon fillets in egg mixture before coating thoroughly with the crumbing mixture.
  5.  Transfer crumbed fillets onto a lined or greased baking tray. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until salmon is cooked to your preferred level of ‘doneness’.
  6.  Serve salmon with a side of green salad leaves, drizzle of olive oil, and wedge of lemon.
