This recipe is healthy, nourishing and incredibly easy to make. It is gluten and lactose free and packed with omega-3 rich foods including walnuts, hemp hearts, ghee and salmon for brain boosting power.



2 tbls Manitoba Hemp Hearts
3 tbls walnuts
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, halved
1 6-ounce wild caught salmon (discount code “KAMA19” at check out for $25 off your Sitka Salmon Shares order- good through 5/31/2019)
3 tsp Bulletproof ghee, divided


1.) Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and pulse walnuts in a food processor until finely ground
2.) In a small bowl combine pulsed walnuts, hemp hearts and salt and pepper
3.) Place the salmon on a piece of parchment paper and squeeze half a lemon over the top; melt 1 tsp ghee and drizzle on top
4.) Sprinkle the hemp hearts and walnut mixture onto the salmon and press it down to form a crust
5.) In a cast-iron skillet, melt about 2 tsp ghee; add skin-on salmon fillet with the skin side down
6.) Cook for 3 minutes over high heat to brown the skin, spooning some of the melted ghee over the top of the fish as it cooks
7.) Transfer the pan to oven; roast until fish is just cooked through (approximately 8 to 10 minutes)
