Ok , so if you have been following along thus far you know I am on somewhat of a health kick. Or at least i try to be. So once again wanted to try something new with fish . I love salmon and had some on had . I found this recipe from allrecipes.com, which had 4.5 stars and 389 ratings/reviews i figured I'd make it some 300+ people couldn't be wrong... right? So after reading some of the reviews that were rated most helpful I made a few minor changes. First I used Italian bread crumbs instead of plain. I didn't have plain and didn't feel like toasting bread. So used 1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs and 4 Ritz butter crackers for the crumb mix and about 3/4 cup chopped pecans. I then baked it for 20mins on 350 ,then melted 1 tablespoon butter and drizzled it on top the fish (because some of the bread crumb mix wasn't toasted like i wanted. ) then baked for 8 more mins. I served this with Baked Sweet potato, and steamed fresh broccoli .
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 5 teaspoons honey
- 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
- 3 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
- 6 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 lemon wedges
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, butter, and honey. In another bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.
- Season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with mustard-honey mixture. Cover the top of each fillet with bread crumb mixture.
- Bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at thickest part, or until salmon just flakes when tested with a fork. Serve garnished with lemon wedges.
