  1. Place walnuts in food processor; coarsely chop. Add bread crumbs, lemon rind, olive oil and dill; pulse until crumbly. Mixture should stick together. Season; set aside.
  2. Arrange salmon fillets skin side down on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Brush tops with mustard.
  3. Spoon 1/3 cup of walnut crumb mixture over each fillet; gently press the crumb mixture into the surface of the fish. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F 15 to 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork. Just before serving, sprinkle each with 1 tsp lemon juice.

So good! I did not bother to refrigerate this beforehand and I really don't think there is a need. I added a little lemon juice to the crumb mixture as well. This seemed so fancy for just an eas...

I didn't put the topping in my food processor, I chopped and mixed it by hand and it still turned out great. I will make this again!

This is a outstanding salmon recipe. Just don't over cook the fish.

Amazing, would not change a thing!

This was great but since I don't like mustard I substituted with honey. I really loved the lemon zest, don't skimp. The second time I thought to try almonds because walnuts can be bitter. I will...
