A sweet, tangy, crunchy coating will be your new favorite way to eat salmon! This granola crusted salmon is topped with a honey mustard sauce and grain free granola – perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or date night in!If you don’t know this by now, then I will tell ya again >> I started my own grain free granola company!
You might have noticed the little bag of granola in the sidebar, or maybe you’ve seen it here. And maybe you’ve even tried it!! But I would bet money on the fact that you have never added granola to your salmon before. Right?!
Well I am about to BLOW YOUR MIND.
To be honest, I made this salmon as an experiment, as all recipe development starts, and didn’t have too high of hopes for it. I’ve had pistachio crusted salmon and coconut crusted shrimp before but wasn’t too sure how this was going to turn out. But dang, this salmon is epic.
There are a few reasons why this granola crusted salmon just works:
- Honey mustard coating. This mixture of grainy dijon mustard, honey and lemon juice is the perfect blend of sweet, spicy and just a big tangy. >> A winning combination in my book!
- Opposing textures! I am a big texture person and the more textures in a meal, the more I like it. The salmon in this dish turns out buttery and flakey – the ideal partner for the crunchy granola topping.
