Maple Walnut Salmon


You're just 3 ingredients and 10 minutes away from a healthy, light and delicious dinner.

I originally posted this recipe exactly a year ago today but it’s so fantastic and we eat it so often I needed to update the pictures. See?

Quick and easy Maple Walnut Salmon

I love salmon with a little hint of sweetness. This recipe brings that perfect, delicate touch of sweet along with a big, fat, groin-punch of Omega-3s.

You'll never believe how fast and simple this super-healthy Maple Walnut Salmon is.

While the health benefits and deliciousness of this dish are awesome, my favorite part is the ease and speed of preparation and clean up. It’s the main reason we make this so often. It takes a total of 12 minutes from the second I step foot in the kitchen with a few groceries to serving a complete dinner – with zero dishes to clean.

Maple Walnut Salmon takes just 10 minutes to prepare and is so good for you!

Seriously, I lay a sheet of foil over a cookie sheet. Place the salmon on the foil, salt, pepper, drizzle with maple syrup and put it under the broiler for about 8 minutes. While it’s cooking, I throw some steam-in-bag vegetables in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. I put everything on a plate, sprinkle with walnuts, throw away the vegetable bag and foil, put away the baking sheet and I’m done. We have a super healthy, incredibly delicious meal in less time than it would take to sit in the drive through.

    Looks great! We just last night cooked salmon with home made teriyaki glaze. Just soy sauce, sugar, vinegar and chili flakes.

    This looks like a delicious, easy “must try” recipe! I am sure (based on experience) using wild caught salmon and real maple syrup really makes a difference, too. Too bad our usual Farmer’s Market salmon supplier had sold out of salmon last Saturday or we would be eating this dish tomorrow. Thanks for reposting!
