Why I Love This Recipe

In my many trial and errors and experiments, I have discovered that food processed Chex Mix makes for GREAT bread crumbs! This discovery I must credit to my husband, who was looking into the pantry with me one day while we tried to figure out how to magically acquire breadcrumbs with no bread in the house. I also like "nut crusted" fish dishes. So I used some pine nuts and the chex mix as a topping for salmon. It was a success!

Ingredients You'll Need

salmon per person (toss around in lemon juice and olive oil, salt, pepper)
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 garlic clove
3 basil leaves
1/2 cup chex mix (or seasoned bread crumbs)


In food processor, blend ingredients. Bake salmon on cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 5 minutes, until color changes to lighter pink. Press blended nut crust on top of salmon. Finish in oven 5 minutes or until desired 'doneness'.
