Mustard Walnut Salmon

We all love salmon and I’m always looking for new ways to make it. Lately, I’ve been throwing it on the grill but we ran out of propane….so I decided to find a new recipe.

I found this recipe and it was delicious! The tangy of the Dijon mustard with fresh dill and chopped walnuts worked perfectly with salmon. I’ll definitely be making it again! I served with steamed asparagus and baked sweet potatoes. I had one piece left and placed it over a green salad with a red wine vinaigrette dressing and it was one of the best lunches I’ve had in a long time.

4 salmon filets
2 Tbsp dijon mustard

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Pat dry the each filet and place on the baking sheet. Brush the djion mustard on the tops of each filet.

In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the topping. Divide between each filet and spread across the top. Press down slightly for the topping to stick to the mustard.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your liking. Drizzle with fresh lemon juice before serving.
