A fun new way to dress up salmon with a topping reminiscent of a great slice of baklava. The nutty & sweet coating adds a fun new twist on salmon.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup dry breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup walnuts or ¼ cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 4 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 4 (4 ounce) salmon fillets
  • fresh ground pepper
  • kosher salt
  • Lemon slices
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°; Line shallow roasting pan with non-stick aluminum foil, or spray with non-stick pan spray.
  2. In small bowl, blend butter, mustard, and honey, set aside; in another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, nuts, and parsley.
  3. Place salmon fillets on prepared pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and brush with honey-mustard mixture; sprinkle tops with crumb/nut mixture; if any remains, press into sides of salmon.
