Macadamia Lime Baked Salmon

Servings: 6 -8
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 30 mins


  • 2.5 pounds salmon fillet
  • 1 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dill weed, dry
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Rinse the salmon; cut the salmon fillet into 2-3 large pieces. Dry the sides with a paper towel and place on a large parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • In a food processor, finely chop the macadamia nuts. Combine the nuts, brown sugar, lime juice, dill, and pepper together in a small bowl. Spread on top of the salmon, pressing firmly to pack it down.
  • ┬áBake at 425 for 12-15 minutes or until the fish is done. Don’t overcook the salmon. Use the back of a spatula to press down on the salmon to feel if it’s cooked. If the spongy feeling is gone, and the salmon is firm, then it is cooked!
  • Remove from the oven; let sit for 3-5 minutes. Serve.
