Serves: 4


  • 4 5-oz salmon fillets, about 1" thick
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/3 c chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place fish in nonstick 3-quart rectangular baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and cracked pepper, to taste. Drizzle with syrup. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
  • While fish bakes, warm oil in 9" skillet over medium-high heat and stir in walnuts. Cook until lightly toasted, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Spoon nuts over fish. Serve with steamed kale, Swiss chard, or green beans, if desired.
