4 salmon fillets
Salt and pepper
1 cup coarsely ground walnuts (a food processor works best for this)
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and oil a baking sheet.
2. Arranged the salmon fillets skin-side-down. Season the salmon fillets generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle each piece of salmon generously with honey, and use your fingers to smooth the salmon into as even a layer as possible. Dip the honeyed side of the salmon into the walnuts, making sure to get a good coating. Place the salmon on the baking sheet, skin-side-down.
3. Bake the salmon until cooked through, about 12 minutes - pay close attention, as the timing will depend on the size of your fillets.
4. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over top.
A delicious Christmas dinner: walnut-honey salmon, broccolini with walnuts and sweet soy sauce, buttery mashed potatoes, applesauce, and Nutella swirl buns.
I bet that crunch from the walnuts was delicious! This is a definite weeknight winner too!ReplyDelete
Looks like the walnut crunch goes great against the salmon!ReplyDelete
