Baked Dijon Salmon

Adapted from Allrecipes

I love fish, but having grown up in land locked Utah I am a bit intimidated to make it. This recipe was so easy (perfect for a seafood novice) and had great flavor.

4 salmon filets
1/4 cup butter (100 grams) softened
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
4 tsp fresh parsley (2 tsp dried)
2 tsp dill
salt and pepper
Lemon slices, for garnish (or sprinkle with lemon juice)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey and set aside. In another small bowl, mix spices, bread crumbs and pecans.

Put the salmon in an oven save dish. Drizzle each filet with honey mustard mixture, then sprinkle the tops with the bread crumb mix.

Bake salmon for 15 minutes in the oven, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with a wedge of lemon and serve.
