I’m not sure why we don’t eat much fish. It may be, because my husband would probably prefer it fried with a slice of white bread and mustard (a southern thing, I suppose). Or the fact that my children won’t even look at it! They act as if I set liver with onions in front of them! Yuck! So, I don’t bother.
Alright, so on to the fish. Like I said, my sister-in-law gave me this recipe. I come from a family of foodies and all around awesome cooks! We know how to get down! So, whenever I’m in a rut I call one of them. Something good always comes of it. Let’s get to the recipe!
Serving Size: 4 peeps
Preparation: 15-20 minutes
Cook Time: 12-15 minutes
Here is what you need:
4 Salmon fillets ( I used two large wild salmon fillets)
1/4 tsp salt (I used Mediterranean Sea Salt)
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
2 tbsp Butter
1 1/2 tbsp Honey
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I made my own, unseasoned)
1/4 cup pecans
1 tbsp Fresh Parsley
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Then sprinkle the salt and pepper all over fish. Mix together Dijon mustard, butter, and honey. Brush the mixture all over fish. Then in a food processor, finely chop the pecans. If you would like a more crunchy texture, roughly chop the pecans. Mix together bread crumbs and crushed pecans. Spoon the pecan mixture all over fish. Place fish in a shallow baking dish. Place in oven, and bake for 12-15 minutes. Crust will be nice and golden brown.
That’s it! This dish is very flavorful and the crust gives it that nice finish. Your kids may even try it! I was going to serve this with pasta and vegetables. It probably would even be good on top of a salad! Yum yum!
Try it. It’s good. 🙂
