  • Our cashew-crusted salmon filets feature a hint of lemon and the nutty goodness of cashews! 


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons onion, minced - for food safety, scrub firm produce with a clean vegetable brush under running water
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 skin-on salmon filets, 4-5 ounces each
  • 2/3 cup Fisher® Premium Whole Cashews, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, halved


  1. Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet and heat 1 minute until hot.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the honey and mustard together, add the onion and garlic; mix well.
  3. Brush the salmon on the skin side with the honey mixture thick enough to coat. Place in the cashews and coat well.
  4. Place the fish skin side down in the hot skillet and gently sauté until the side turns golden. Turn over the salmon and finish cooking it until the internal temperature reaches 145°F on a food thermometer.
  5. Place on a platter and drizzle with the remaining oil and a squirt of lemon. Serve immediately.
