Walnut Crusted Wild Salmon

  • 1 lb fresh wild salmon
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1-2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a plastic ziplock bag, add the walnuts and Cajun seasoning. Using a rolling pin, crush the walnuts until fine crumbs form. This is my quick method but a food processor will work as well.

Place the salmon in a baking dish and add a bit of water to cover the bottom of the pan. Press the seasoned walnut mixture onto the salmon (sprinkle sea salt over the fish if desired) and bake in the oven until salmon is done and flakes easily with a fork (a rule of thumb is about 10 minutes for each 1″ thickness of the filet).

Serve the salmon over a bed of greens with a side of roasted vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes) and enjoy!
