This is a definite redo in my house!! Wow, the taste of it was fabulous and the kids had so many extra pieces that the hubs and I only got one a piece and there were NO leftovers the next day... This is the first time that I have made salmon and I figured that it would go over pretty well since my kids love fish of any kind, but I didn't realize that it was going to go over quite so well!! We love it, as you can probably tell. I had pecans at my house, since the in-laws have a whole grove of them, so I used that in place of the walnuts. Go nuts, try it with whatever floats your boat!! Make sure you make extra though, because it will go fast!
Walnut Crusted Salmon
(Recipe found in Taste of Home)
4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
4 teaspoons dijon mustard
4 teaspoons honey
2 slices whole wheat bread, torn into pieces
3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Preheat oven to 400. Place salmon on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Mix mustard and honey; brush over top of salmon. Place bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in wannuts, oil and thyme, press onto salmon. Bake 12-15 minutes or until topping is lightly browned and salmon just begins to flake easily with a fork.
