This recipe is best with pecans. The sweet flavors of honey and pecans combined with spicy Dijon mustard work so well with the strong flavor of salmon. This recipe has come out perfect every time I’ve made it. Just be careful not to over cook the salmon.
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp melted butter
4 tsp honey
1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
2 tsp chopped parsley
4 4-ounce Alaska salmon fillets (4 to 6 ounces each) — thawed if necessary
Salt and black pepper
- Mix together mustard, butter and honey in a small bowl; set aside.
- Mix together bread crumbs, pecans and parsley in a small bowl; set aside.
- Season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet or broiling pan. Brush each fillet with mustard-honey mixture. Pat top of each fillet with bread crumb mixture. Bake at 450 F for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at thickest part, or until salmon just flakes when tested with a fork.
