This Low-Carb Cajun Salmon recipe blankets tender pieces of salmon with a spicy Cajun crust. This easy recipe makes a perfect main course for dinner and is suitable for low-carb, keto, gluten-free, grain-free, and Paleo diets.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and the garlic.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, Cajun seasoning, and sea salt.
Coat a salmon fillet with the egg mixture and turn to cover both sides.
Dip the egg-coated salmon in the dry ingredients and turn to coat. Press down on the coating so that it sticks on. (Repeat with remaining fillets)
Heat avocado oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Gently place the salmon fillets in the skillet. If they don't sizzle, the skillet isnt hot enough. Be sure the fillets don't touch.
Cook fillets for 3-5 minutes or until the coating is brown. Turn fillets and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until done.
Sprinkle green onion slices on top to garnish.
