Here’s an easy math equation for you!  Wild salmon + walnuts = highly nutritious + totally delicious! It’s so simple!

You just dredge the salmon with ground walnuts and throw on top of a rack in a hot oven and cook for 20 minutes and you are done! The best part, there is no fishy smell in the house, only the wonderful aroma of baked walnuts, how wonderful is that?

Serves 2


2 filets of wild salmon* (little less than 1 lb., the salmon filet should be about 1-inch thick and 1 1/2 inches wide with skin on)
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely ground
Pinch of coarse sea salt
Fresh ground pepper


Preheat oven to 375º F. Salt and pepper the salmon. Place the ground walnuts on a plate and dredge the top of each slice of salmon with the walnuts. Add any remaining ground walnuts that did not stick to the top of each slice.

Place the salmon skin-side down on a rack (any simple cooling rack will do just fine!) placed on top of a baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.

When ready to serve, use a spatula to lift the salmon off the rack (the skin will peel off and stay behind on the rack – perfect!)
