Ingredients

FOR THE SALMON AND BROCCOLINI

  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon
  • 1 pound broccolini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts ground
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes ground
  • 3 tbsp panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

FOR THE PINEAPPLE MANGO SALSA

  • 1/2 pineapple diced
  • 1 mango peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 8 strawberries stemmed and diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime juiced

Instructions

FOR THE SALMON AND BROCCOLINI

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place salmon fillets on the baking sheet skin-side-down (if your salmon has skin on) and surround with the broccolini. Drizzle the salmon and broccolini with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the salmon to the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the macadamia nuts, coconut flakes, and panko to the bowl of a food processor and process until ground and crumbly. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the salt and melted coconut oil until fully combined.
  • Remove salmon from the oven after 5 minutes. Brush with olive oil and pile a small layer of the macadamia mixture on the top, gently pressing down. Return baking sheet to the oven and bake for an additional 8-12 minutes, or until salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
  • Remove from the oven.

FOR THE PINEAPPLE MANGO SALSA

  • Add the diced pineapple, mango, red onion, and strawberries to a large bowl. Gently mix to combine.  Add the fresh chopped cilantro and lime juice to the bowl and mix.

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

  • Serve the macadamia crusted salmon with a side of quinoa, roasted broccolini, and a big scoop of pineapple mango salsa.
