Honey Mustard Walnut Crusted Salmon

This recipe came from my local grocery store. Specifically, from the guy who gives me fresh seafood every time I visit the store.  I was looking for something to cook for lunch and after all the grilling over Memorial Day weekend, the salmon fillets (which was on sale!) seem to be the perfect choice.  My seafood guy asked me how I was going to cook the fillets and I told him I’d make my favorite dill lemon sauce to pour over the grilled salmon.  He  suggested I try his girlfriend’s recipe:  mix honey with ground mustard in equal portions, pour over the salmon fillets; sprinkle some ground nuts on top and bake for 15 minutes at 400F.  Sounds easy enough.  I got home, mixed the sauce and in 20 minutes (the salmon pieces were thick), we were enjoying this wonderful lunch dish.  Perfect with salad greens.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces salmon fillet with skin on
  • 2 tbs homey
  • 2 tbs dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. Pat salmon pieces dry and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper (to avoid sticking). Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix honey and mustard. Pour over salmon fillets evenly.  Sprinkle walnut pieces on top. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until salmon is cooked.
  3. Serve with rice, potatoes or green salad.
