Walnut-Crusted Salmon

By John Crowley

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

  • 2 tbsps dried bread crumbs

  • 1 tbsp all-fruit apricot jam

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1-1/4 pounds salmon fillet, skinned

  • Salt and pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 deg F. Combine the walnuts and bread crumbs, arrange on a plate, and set aside. Mix together the jam and vinegar in a small bowl and mix well. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Brush both sides with the jam mixture. Coat both sides evenly with the walnut mixture, pressing the extra breading evenly over the top. Place on a baking dish and bake until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon. Serves 4.
