Honey-Dijon Walnut Salmon

Want a way to spice up your boring old salmon?  Why not add some crunch, sweetness and tanginess, with a honey-dijon glaze and a walnut crust.  Now I need to give credit to the WashingtonPost.com because thats where I found the recipe.  I had some walnuts in the cabinet and salmon that needed to be cooked so I Googled “walnut salmon” and this is what came up in my search results.  Totally Paleo friendly if you eat honey. Some of my co-workers who hate salmon said they would eat this meal again, but then again they eat anything I make so I am not sure if that is a compliment or not.

Ingredients:
  1.  1/2 cup raw walnuts
  2. 1 T Honey
  3. 1 T dijon-style mustard
  4. 1/8 t salt
  5. 1/4 t pepper
  6. Four 6oz salmon-filets 3/4”-1” thick
Directions:
  1.  Preheat oven to 375º
  2. Pulse the walnuts in a food processor
  3. grease pan with coconut oil
  4. mix together honey, mustard, salt, pepper
  5. brush mixture onto the top of each salmon filet
  6. press salmon filet into walnuts
  7. bake for 10-15 mins, depending on thickness of salmon
  8. serve with a side of bok-choy, found here.
