Directions

  1. Place walnuts in food processor; coarsely chop. Add bread crumbs, lemon rind, olive oil and dill; pulse until crumbly. Mixture should stick together. Season; set aside.
  2. Arrange salmon fillets skin side down on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Brush tops with mustard.
  3. Spoon 1/3 cup of walnut crumb mixture over each fillet; gently press the crumb mixture into the surface of the fish. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F 15 to 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork. Just before serving, sprinkle each with 1 tsp lemon juice.

This was really good. I forgot to use the mustard, but the crunch of the walnuts was wonderful. I also did not have fresh dill, so I used 1-1 1/2 Tb. dried. My 4 kids LOVED it and all had seconds.

My wife and I really enjoyed this, but I made a few modifications: I didn't have lemons, so no lemon juice or lemon rinds. I used lemon pepper seasoning, black & cayenne pepper, onion & garlic powder in the walnut crust mix (maybe 1 tsp each). I also seasoned the salmon filets with salt, pepper, store-bought italian seasoning and diced yellow onions and let it all marinate for about 20 mins. After baking for 20 minutes, I set the oven to broil for 2-3 minutes (watch carefully- crumbs will blacken). I will definitely use this recipe again to impress some house guests.
