Honey-Walnut Seasoned Salmon

Honey-Walnut Seasoned Salmon


Yield: 4 servings

Crunchy and slightly sweet, this walnut- crusted recipe is big on flavor. It’s an easy recipe, perfect for weeknight dinners, yet elegant enough to serve for special occasions.


1 1/2 lbs. salmon fillets
Freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh basil or tarragon
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
4 cups Spinach
2 tablespoons extra- virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Remove the skin from the salmon and cut into 4 pieces. Place on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Stir together the mustard, honey, herbs and garlic and spread over the top and sides of the salmon.
2. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of walnuts over each fillet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the surface of the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Toss the spinach with the oil and vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Arrange the spinach on 4 plates and top each serving with a salmon fillet.
