BAKED DIJON SALMON
Baked Dijon Salmon
By far, our favorite fish is salmon. There's so many wonderful ways to prepare it and I've been having so much fun trying out new recipes with the fresh salmon I've had lately. The newest recipe I tried was for this Baked Dijon Salmon. It had amazing flavor from the buttery Dijon honey sauce that's spread over the fish to the crispy topping of panko breadcrumbs, chopped pecans and fresh parsley. All the flavors worked so well together and didn't take away from the salmon, but rather enhanced it just enough for a hint of sweetness. I'm anxious to prepare this recipe using other fish such as cod or even tilapia. There's something that works so well with Dijon mustard, honey and pecans that I'm even tempted to try this with chicken! The preparation is simple and you can definitely have dinner ready in less than 30 minutes. I really liked how easy it was to put together and when served, it seems so elegant and involved when really that's hardly the case. I'll have to report back to see how this recipe works out with other fish and chicken... but regardless, this salmon was outstanding and I'm definitely making it again!
