Lately, my family has been partaking in Salmon Sunday, which is great because salmon is good-tasting and good-for-you. Salmon is right up there with chicken, in terms of versatility. There are countless ways to prepare salmon. Lately, we've been doing lots of experimenting to discover new recipes. This is one of our new recipes--found in Taste of Home. I really love this recipe because of how easy it is! It gives you some mild tangy-sweetness, isn't too mustard-y, and has an awesome crunchy coasting to complement the tender-flakiness of the fish. Mmmmmm....
Honey-Nut Encrusted Salmon
2lbs salmon (slab from Costco, cut into 4-5oz. fillets)
2.5 T honey
2.5 T dijon mustard
kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
2 slices wheat bread, toasted then processed into crumbs
4 T finely chopped walnuts
1/2 t dried thyme
2 t olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine honey & mustard in a small bowl. Pour over fillets. Season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, walnuts, thyme, and oil with a fork. Press the crumb mixture atop the fillets. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fillets.
