LighterLife recipe: Walnut and anchovy crusted salmon

Walnut&Anchovy Crusted Salmon_small editLooking for a lighter summer recipe to feed the family this weekend? Here’s a quick and tasty salmon dish to enjoy outside in the sunshine.

If you can find them, try to buy wild salmon fillets in preference to the farmed ones – they taste much better, especially the Alaskan ones. Oily fish are an excellent source of protein and are high in omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential for your health, so try to include them in your diet at least once a week.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.
  2. Arrange the salmon fillets on a non-stick baking tray and season them lightly with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the lemon zest and juice, breadcrumbs, walnuts, parsley and chopped anchovy. Spoon this mixture over each salmon fillet, pressing down lightly to cover it.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes, until the fish is cooked and the topping is crisp and golden brown.
  5. Carefully transfer the salmon fillets to two warm serving plates and serve immediately with a selection of steamed vegetables and a wedge of lemon to garnish.

Love the look of the recipes… but surely this isn’t for the lite plan if it has breadcrumbs, walnuts and lemon zest in it? I’ve spotted others that seem to be mis-labelled as well :(


    Hi David. Thanks for your message. That is correct. This recipe is not for the Lite programme. However, it is a healthier, lighter meal option for clients on LighterLife Management or for people who are after a healthy recipe. If a recipe is suitable for Lite clients, we usually suggest this in the feature. I hope this helps. Do get in touch if you have any more questions.

      Thanks for the reply – I thought this might be the case – can I suggest that you take the ‘Lite Plan’ tag off it in that case, as it’s currently listed if you select ‘Lite Plan’ from the recipes drop-down menu.


        Hi David

        Thank you for letting us know. We will change this ASAP.
