2.  Season salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper.  Place in skillet, skin side down, cooking 3 fillets at a time.

4.  With a spatula, flip the salmon fillets over and cook for 2 more minutes.  Transfer the fillets to a plate and set aside.

5. Repeat with the remaining fillets and set aside.



1.  In the meantime, combine the almond milk, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, dill, thyme, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly incorporated.

2.  Add the butter to the skillet and melt over medium heat.

3. Add the sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer.

4. Place the cooked salmon fillets back in the skillet.

5.  Cook for a minute, or until salmon is heated through.

6.  Remove from heat, place salmon on a plate and spoon sauce on top. Serve and enjoy!
