Make preparing an entree easy and delicious with this incredible recipe.


  • 4 (5-6 oz) salmon filets
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino or parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • slices of lemon, for serving
  • pinch of sea salt and pepper, for serving

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Step 2

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Add salmon skin side down and rub a little olive oil over each filet.

Step 3

Combine hemp hearts, grated cheese, basil, parsley, one (1) teaspoon olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl. Cover the top of each filet with the hemp heart and cheese mixture and press down with your hands to help the mixture stick.

Step 4

Place salmon in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes or until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. You can also broil the salmon for the last two minutes to get a brown and crisp crust. Just be sure to use foil instead of parchment if you’re going to broil.

Step 5

Serve salmon with a slice of lemon, salt and pepper.
