Oh Parmesan crusted ANYTHING – how do I love thee? You could put a parmesan crust on shoe leather and I would eat it. I very rarely ever make anything with a parmesan crust at home however. I don’t really have a reason why, but Mr. Beet loves anything with a nut crust.
So when I was asked to create a recipe with a new mayonnaise product, I was sent a full sized jar of Chosen Foods Coconut Oil Mayo. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try a parmesan crust at home. Parmesan Crusted Salmon to be exact. And it is so simple to do, I question why I have none done this before. I am a big fan of Chosen Foods as all their products are non-GMO project certified. The company is 100% transparent, take this Coconut Oil Mayo for example. I love when I can pronounce all the ingredients in a product – Coconut Oil, Organic Egg Yolks, Water, Organic Sugar, Salt, Organic Distilled Vinegar, mustard, citric acid, rosemary extract. Also, Chosen Food Coconut Oil mayo is:
- Soy & Canola free
- Made with cage-free, organic eggs
- No coconut taste
I have been a fan of coconut oil for a few years now. Coconut oil:
- Supports heart health with healthy medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).
- Improves brain function by converting MCTs into ketones, which serves the brain with energy.
- Boosts immune system with lauric acid which has antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.
- Improves energy and endurance because it is easy to digest and is easily converted into usable energy.
I think what surprises people the most about products with coconut oil is that there isn’t much of a coconut taste. Which makes this mayo even more versatile.
Making the crust was super easy. I just mixed the mayo with grated parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, then generously spread it onto two salmon filets.
I actually made a little extra of the mayo mix to make these Parmesan Crusted Tomatoes.
The Parmesan Crusted Salmon turned out to be really tasty. Even Mr. Beet loved it. The crust cooks up crispy and golden, no other condiments needed.
- 2 salmon filet steaks, depinned and skin removed
- 1/2 cup Chosen Foods Coconut Oil mayo
- 2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
- 3 tbsp. plain breadcrumbs

- In a bowl combine the mayo, parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.
