POTATO-ENCRUSTED SALMON (gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free)

Need a dish to impress someone important (ie: yourself because that's who really matters!)? POTATO-WRAPPED SALMON is it! Looks fancy... but trust me, it's EASY!!

Potato Wrapped Salmon Gluten-Free

Thinly sliced potato wrapped around tender pesto-brushed salmon ... salty, fatty, crispy, melty... and EASY... all boxes ticked!

The key to this dish is using a good, sharp mandoline to slice the potato as thinly as possible so it folds easily and cooks quickly. Mine is from Fullstar and available on Amazon. I love it! Sharp, stable, and easy to use. ;)

In fact, all of those pretty veggies were prepped on my mandoline using only ONE blade!

⭐️ Back to that salmon... that glorious salmon:

✔️ Peel a large white potato and cut it in half lengthwise.

✔️ Use a mandoline to cut each potato half (large side down) into super-thin slices.

✔️ Place the potato slices in a rectangle the length of your salmon piece and wide enough to wrap over the width of it... making sure your potato slices overlap so they are easier to fold.

✔️ Set the salmon in the middle of the potatoes.

✔️ Brush salmon with pesto and drizzle with salt.

✔️ Brush the outside of the potato with avocado oil and salt liberally.

✔️ Heat a skillet over medium heat with avocado oil to coat the bottom.

✔️ Add the salmon to the pan and cook for about 5-6 minutes on the large sides until potatoes are crispy and salmon is med-rare. I slide the salmon to edge of the pan to sear the potatoes on the short sides (we don't want raw side taters 😆).
