Sweet and Spicy Walnut Crusted Salmon

Yield 2

Maple-y, nutty, crunchy goodness. A new twist on salmon. 



  1.  Pat fish fillets dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2.  In a small bowl, combine the nuts, spices, crushed garlic, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and soy sauce. Stir well.
  3. Place salmon fillets on a plate and spoon the nut mixture over each piece as evenly as you can. Pat to hold in place. Place in the refrigerator uncovered for 30 minutes to 2 hours. 
  4. Place fish fillets on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Cook the fish for about 10-12 minutes, depending on desired doneness and thickness of the fillets. Turn the oven to broil and broil 1-2 minutes until the "crust" becomes crispy. (Watch closely so the nuts don't burn!)
  6. Remove from oven and drizzle with a little maple syrup just before serving, if desired.
