Melt-in-your-mouth salmon

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Fish
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 4 (6 oz) - salmon fillets
  • sprinkle - salt & pepper
  • 2 tablespoons - Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons - butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons - honey
  • 1/4 cup - bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup - chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons - chopped fresh parsley

Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper.  Place fillets, skin side down, in a lightly greased baking dish.

Combine mustard, butter and honey and brush on fillets.

Combine breadcrumbs, pecans, and parsley and spoon mixure evenly on top of each fillet.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily.





This is our favorite heart-healthy holiday entree.  It looks elegant, tastes delicious, and is easy-as-pie to prepare.  We buy large salmon fillets from Costco's and adjust the honey mustard sauce and pecan coating mixure according to the size of fillets being used.  This recipe saves time in the kitchen for mingling with the guests!
