Since this is my first official recipe post in over 2 months, I feel like it needs to be good, like really good. (Not that I usually post mediocre recipes; they’re all ones we love.)
Also, since I’m pregnant, tired all the time, and have to deal with a screaming toddler if she sees me step into the kitchen to cook, every recipe I make has got to be simple and fast.
Luckily for me, this salmon fits the bill. It is absolutely delicious and so quick and easy to make.
I’ve never been much of a fan of plain ol’ salmon with some salt, pepper, and lemon juice. While it might be your cup of tea, it’s just a little plain for me. I like something with a bit more flavor.
That’s where this salmon comes to the rescue. It’s bursting with flavor and nearly as easy to make as just sprinkling salt and pepper. I’m not usually a big fan of mustard, but the brown mustard gives the fish a delicious flavor and the honey lends a touch of sweetness for a great combination. The pecans add a terrific texture and slightly nutty taste to round out this flavor explosion.

- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 Tablespoon spicy brown mustard
- 1/2 Tablespoon honey
- 2 Tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons pecans, chopped finely

- Place salmon filets on a greased or silpat-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, combine butter, mustard, and honey, Spread evenly over both filets.
- In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs, finely chopped pecans, and fresh parsley. Sprinkle evenly over both filets, lightly pressing mixture in.
- Bake in a 450° preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
