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. While the health benefits of this dish are awesome, I love it especially because I can cook it in the toaster oven in under 15 minutes flat and be left with very little clean up. Win-win-win.
I know you’re wondering if something this easy and healthy can really be so delicious but trust me, it is. Try it out and let me know what you think!
- salmon - 4 4-oz filets
- salt and pepper - to taste
- real maple syrup - 2 tbs
- walnuts - 1/4 c, crushed
Preheat oven to 450F.
Season salmon with salt and pepper and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with maple syrup and cook until salmon is only slightly pink inside, approximately 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and add walnuts. Toast about 1 minute until fragrant and beginning to brown.
Top salmon with walnuts and serve.
