Pecan Crusted Salmon

Are you looking for a simple yet special dish? This is our favorite salmon recipe and so quick and easy to prepare.  (I buy the frozen salmon fillets in bulk and keep on hand.) The directions are for two, but easily multiplied to serve more.
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 2 salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
  • lemon wedges
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F 
  2. Mix together the mustard, butter, and honey. 
  3. In another bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.
  4. Season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  5. Brush with mustard-honey mixture. Cover the top of each fillet with bread crumb mixture.
  6. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until salmon just flakes when tested with a fork. 
  7. Serve with lemon wedges.
  *Serves two.
