Brain Boosting Walnut Salmon Sticks

Yields: 16-20 sticks Prep Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

Cold water fish, such as wild Alaskan salmon, and walnuts are loaded with brain boosting and anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats. These two power foods also boast iron and vitamin E, among many other nutrients.


1 lb. fresh salmon, bones and skin removed

1/2 c. raw walnuts

2 slices whole wheat, multi-grain or sprouted grain bread, toasted

*(can be gluten free bread for a gluten free meal)

½ c. shredded parmesan cheese

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. onion powder

1 T. olive oil (optional)

1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 t. olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Blend walnuts, toasted bread, parmesan cheese, salt and onion powder in a food processor until well blended. Spread onto plate for coating.

3. Cut salmon into “sticks”, about 2 inches long by 1/2 inches wide.

4. Dip salmon sticks into egg mixture. Move to breading plate, and lightly cover with breading. Move to parchment paper or silicone lined baking sheet, at least 1 inch apart. Drizzle 1 T. olive oil over uncooked salmon sticks (optional).

5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook, or fish will become dry.
