Ingredients

Salmon

  • 1.5-2 pounds of salmon, cut into 6 filets

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon

  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Walnut Herb Sauce

  • 1 1/4 cups California walnuts

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 cup lightly packed Italian parsley leaves

  • 1/4 cup roughly snipped fresh chives

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons drained capers

  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly brush with oil. Top with salmon and brush with oil. Roast for 10 minutes or until salmon is cooked to your liking.

  2. While salmon is cooking, place walnuts and garlic in a food processor and pulse to chop. Add parsley, chives, lemon juice and capers and pulse again to chop.

  3. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil until incorporated, scraping down the sides as needed. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Serve salmon with a large spoonful of Walnut Herb Sauce.
