This Keto Pecan and Gouda Crusted Salmon recipe is sponsored by Moon Cheese, thank you for supporting the brands that make delicious Cast Iron Keto recipes EPIC.
Salmon is one of those proteins that make their way to our menu at least twice a week. Usually, we give the fillets a quick sear in our cast iron skillet with a bit of oil or ghee. We were starting to feel bored though with the plain salmon. So we decided to jazz our weekly salmon up a bit with a delicious and crunchy topping!
For the pecan and gouda topping, we’re using our favorite Gouda Moon Cheese as the cheesy “panko” style crumb. Along with the Moon Cheese, we also added crushed pecans, butter, mustard, spices, and parsley. It’s such a simple topping to toss together but it packs a flavor punch!
After topping the salmon fillets with the mixture a quick bake in the oven is all it needs!
We like to serve this Keto Pecan and Gouda Crusted Salmon up with some mashed cauliflower and sautéed spinach (or keto creamed spinach!) for one perfect low-carb meal.
I also want to give a shoutout to Moon Cheese for their awesome new packaging + NEW flavors!! The two new flavors are Cheddar Bacon Me Crazy and Garlickin’ Parmesan! Talk about delicious!

Keto Pecan and Gouda Crusted Salmon
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ cup crushed Gouda Moon Cheese 28g
- ¼ cup finely chopped pecans
- 2 teaspoons finely chopped parsley
- 2 6 oz salmon fillets
- Preheat the oven to 450° F.
- In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, melted butter, salt, pepper, crushed Gouda Moon Cheese, pecans, and parsley.
- Place the salmon fillets in a 10” or larger cast iron skillet. Top with the pecan mixture and transfer to the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how you like your salmon cooked. If the pecans are browning too much before the salmon is cooked through, simply cover with aluminum foil.
