Salmon with Basil & Garlic Coconut Oil Mayo


Basil & Garlic Mayo Salmon


Servings 2 servings


  • 2 6 oz. salmon filets
  • 1/4 cup Chosen Foods Coconut Oil Mayo
  • 2 tbsp. chopped basil
  • 2 tbsp. almond flour
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan or romano cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • sliced lemon wedges for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  2. Add the mayonnaise, basil, almond flour, parmesan cheese, garlic, sea salt, and black pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until creamy and smooth.

  3. Wash and dry the salmon filets. Place them on the lined sheet pan with the skin-side down. Smear the basil mayo mixture over the top of each filet in a very thick layer, minimum ¼”. (Note: any extra sauce can be saved to serve with the salmon once cooked.)

  4. Bake for 12-14 minutes. For an additional golden color on the top, place under the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes, careful to keep an eye on it as to not burn it.

  5. Squeeze a lemon wedge over each filet and enjoy immediately.
