Place the salmon on a baking sheet, season both sides generously with salt, cover with plastic wrap and set aside. Stir together the tahini, lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic in a bowl, Season with salt and set aside. Meanwhile, for tarator crust, preheat oven to 375F. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and roast, stirring occasionally, until golden 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside to cool and then finely chop. Combine the walnuts in a bowl with the cilantro and mint. Increase oven temperature to 375F. Warm the olive oil in a large frying pan. Sear the salmon on both sides for 2 minutes. Remove from the frying pan and place on a baking sheet, skin side down.
