Although I used salmon fillets with no skin (the husband’s request) you could happily use fillets with the skin on.  It’s your own personal taste.

This salmon walnut recipe is low in carbs but high in fat and protein.  It’s almost a perfect low carb high fat dish.   Both the salmon and walnuts are brimming with omega 3 fats, antioxidants and vitamins.  Eating just four walnuts a day has been shown to significantly raise blood levels of heart-healthy ALA and walnut consumption supports healthful cholesterol levels.

So when you want a quick and easy dish, reach for this salmon walnut recipe!
