- 1 piece of salmon – I used a fillet of salmon (which is a big piece of fish, almost 2 inches in thickness in some spots. This piece basically filled our baking sheet. This size is enough to feed 4 adults and a couple of kids!)
- 2 cups macadamia nuts, chopped
- 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce or teriyaki sauce
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- salt and fresh ground pepper (to taste)
- a little extra maple syrup to drizzle on after baking for a garnish
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Lay a piece of parchment paper or tin foil on a rimmed baking sheet.
- Then lay down the salmon fillet, skin side down.
- Generously spread the chili sauce (or teriyaki sauce) on the top of the salmon. Don’t skimp on the amount!
- Then drizzle on the maple syrup. You can use a lot if you really want the flavour and the sweetness of the syrup.
- Then add the crushed macadamia nuts, covering the top of the salmon, making a crust.
- Generously season with salt and pepper.
- For the size of salmon that I used, I baked it for about 20 minutes (a very general rule to baking salmon is to bake it approximately 10 minutes for each 1 inch of thickness). Check to make sure the nuts aren’t getting too brown. If they are browning too quickly, cover the salmon with tin foil and continue baking.
- When the salmon is done you can drizzle it with a little extra maple syrup.
- Serve immediately. Enjoy!
