Walnuts are also an excellent source of plant-based ALA omega-3 fatty acids + provide a good amount of protein as well as some manganese, copper, and magnesium. They make the perfect #ketofriendly walnut crust to top on wild salmon.


I love adding this Walnut Crusted Salmon on top of delicious salads or serving with some air-fried broccolini.

This recipe using Diamond Walnuts is super simple to make. It’s whole 30 & keto friendly too. 

I’ve personally had so much going on lately, planning for the arrival of our baby girl, so convenient easy recipes have been my go to. This is one of those recipes! For anyone who has not tried an air fryer yet, I’m so sold. It makes the salmon super moist on the inside and crisp on the outside, one of the reasons why the walnut crust is so perfect for the air fryer. 

All air fryers may vary, as well as the thickness of your salmon, so I recommend checking every 3-4 minutes by opening the air fryer and peaking in. 

One of my favorite ways to enjoy this Walnut Crusted salad is over some spring greens but its really so versatile that you can serve it with anything. Serve it with roasted vegetables, cauliflower rice, top it over your favorite salad, etc. 

The lemony-dill crust hits so many flavor profiles. Umami, sweet, salty, herby, etc. 

Add this Walnut Crusted Air Fryer Salmon to your weekly dinner menu for simplicity and a burst of flavor. 

What you’ll need: 

Serves 3-4 people 

3-4 Wild Salmon fillets

1 cup Diamond of California walnuts #madeforhomemade 

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 lemon juiced & zested

1 tbsp dijon mustard

2-3 cloves garlic

1/3 cup dill (loosely packed)

salt and pepper to taste 



Place walnuts, avocado oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, zest, garlic, dill, salt, and pepper in a food processor and pulse a few times until combined (but not blended) by hitting the pulse setting on and off. The mixture should be crunchy & sticky and not so much a paste.

Remove skin from salmon filets. Spray air fryer with avocado oil. Spoon walnut topping on top of filets and then add the filets to an air fryer. Spray the top of the filets (after coating) with a little more avocado oil to prevent the walnuts from burning.

Set air fryer to 350 & air fry for 10-13 minutes depending on the size of your salmon filets. Insert a thermometer in the thickest part of the fillet and look for it to read a temperature of 125-145 degrees F.
