Leaf and chop the parsley . Peel and chop the garlic . In a small bowl, mix the ground almonds with the mustard , the peanut paste , the parsley , the garlic and the breadcrumbs .

Overlap the flat tips of the 2 filets mignons in order to have a long piece of meat of the same thickness. Roll it in almond breadcrumbs and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes.

Turn off the oven and let the meat rest for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
