Yet another dish that could easily do the business as a poster child for Paleo.
Jam-packed with taste, supernaturally good for you, and yet ready in a jiffy, its one potential drawback is the cost of the main ingredient, pushing it into a “weekend special” slot.
It’s that good, there’s one thing I know you won’t be able to resist doing – taking a spatula and scraping the parchment clean of all that sumptuous honey-nut residue. Gorgeous.
Honey and Walnut Crusted Salmon
- 4 x 125g salmon fillets
- honey – about 4 tbsp
- walnuts – about 100g
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- lemon juice
- sesame seed oil
- fresh chives, finely chopped
- Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until they are finely chopped. Set aside.
- Pre-heat the oven to 200° C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place the salmon fillets on the baking tray.
- Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper to taste. Give each salmon a good drizzling of honey, and then a nice covering of chopped walnuts.
- Place the salmon in the middle of the oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until the salmon is thoroughly cooked through – keep a close eye on things after the 15 minute mark.
- When cooked to your satisfaction, remove the salmon from the oven. Dress with a little lemon juice, sesame seed oil, and the finely chopped chives. Serve, together with a simple spinach salad.
