1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the salmon on baking sheets, and drizzle 1 tablespoon of maple syrup on top of each and top with a few walnuts. Bake for 20 minutes or until the fish is firm and lightly golden.
2. In a large pot, combine all ingredients and 2 cups of water and cook over moderately low heat for 45 minutes, or until the lentils and vegetables are soft. Let soup cool then blend with a handheld blender. Add a dash of lemon to taste. Serve with the fish.
