Pecan Crusted Salmon

Posted on

Good news: Seth’s dad came through the surgery with flying colors and is recovering rapidly. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers over the last few days.

Other good news: This one is home with me again ๐Ÿ™‚

Lucy is especially happy, she hasn’t stopped purring since he walked in the door.

As a welcome home dinner, I decided to make this pecan crusted salmon. It is our favorite salmon recipe and so easy and fast.

Here is what you need for the recipe. So simple!

To begin, you combine the breadcrumbs, chopped pecans and parsley in one dish and in another, combine the honey, dijon mustard and melted butter.

Next, salt and pepper your salmon filets and lay them skin side down in a baking dish.

Drizzle the mustard sauce over each filet, and then sprinkle the pecan crumb mixture on top, pressing down gently with the back of a fork to keep it from falling off.

Bake it in the oven at 450 degrees for 12 minutes and voila!

This salmon is awesome. It’s tangy from the dijon mustard, sweet from the honey and has a slightly crunchy topping from the pecans. Give this a try!
