Walnut growers in Northern California have just finished harvest.

We thought it a good time to bring you this interesting way to incorporate these nuts into a main course—grilled salmon, topped with a colorful tangy cabbage and carrot slaw and garnished with fresh cilantro and toasty California walnuts. Our recipe is provided by California Walnuts.

Serves 4




•             3 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

•             3 tablespoons thick teriyaki sauce

•             1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar

•             4 (4 to 6 ounce) salmon fillets

•             1 cup coarsely shredded carrots

•             2 medium green onions, sliced

•             3/4 cup coarsely chopped and toasted California walnuts, divided

•             Fresh cilantro leaves, torn




1.            In a shallow dish stir together chili sauce, teriyaki sauce and vinegar. (Set aside 2 tablespoons.)

2.            Place salmon in dish skin side up and let marinate for 30 minutes.
