WALNUT CRUSTED SALMON

INGREDIENTS

1 cup walnuts, chopped

4 salmon fillets, boneless

¼ cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon dill, chopped

A pinch of sea salt

Black pepper to taste

1 tablespoon mustard

 

DIRECTIONS

 Place walnuts in food processor; coarsely chop. Add breadcrumbs, lemon rind, olive oil and dill; pulse until crumbly. Mixture should stick together. Season with salt and pepper; set aside. 

Arrange salmon fillets skin side down on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Brush tops with mustard.

Spoon 1/3 cup of walnut crumb mixture over each fillet; gently press the crumb mixture into the surface of the fish. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

Bake at 350°F 15 to 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork. Just before serving, sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
