Walnut crusted salmon - ingredients

What to do

1. Preheat the oven to 200°c fan.

2. Place walnuts in a food processor; coarsely chop/ pulse (proceed with caution if using a nutribullet, it will make walnut flour of your walnuts in split seconds, resulting in more of a paste than a crust - like mine did first time). Add lemon zest, olive oil, dill, garlic granules and pepper; pulse until crumbly. Mixture should be crumbly and stick together slightly. Set aside.

3. Arrange salmon fillets skin side down on a lined baking sheet. Spread Dijon mustard over the top.

4. Evenly distribute walnut mixture over each fillet; gently pressing the mixture into the surface of the fish.

5. Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork. You may need to increase the cooking time depending on the thickness of the fish fillet. Garnish with freshly chopped chives, parsley or dill. Serve with your favourite green leafy side.

notes & tips

  • cooked temp salmon is cooked when reading 63 degrees c. Use a food thermometer at the thickest end to measure
  • crisp up the top you may want to pop the fillets under the grill for a minute or two to get the top even crispier - if needed, mine crisps up nicely in the hot oven
