Heart Healthy Cooks,
Here’s a recipe for baked Alaskan Salmon that my family just loves. It’s teaming with Omega 3’s.
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons canola oil butter, melted
5 teaspoons honey
½ cup Italian bread crumbs
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans; leaving some a bit large
3 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped
7 ( 8 ounce ) fresh Salmon fillets
fresh ground pepper
In a small bowl, mix together the Dijon mustard, melted butter, honey, parsley, and freshly ground pepper.
In another bowl, mix together the Italian bread crumbs and pecans.
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with extra-virgin olive oil non-stick.
Remove the fresh Salmon from the seafood deli counter wrapping. Remove scales and rinse well with cold tap water. Check for any remaining scales. Rinse again.
Cut your Salmon into desired fillets and place each on the baking sheet skin down. Spoon on the sauce. Cover each piece generously. Use all the sauce. Next cover each fillet with the crumbs / pecan mixture by spooning as well. Use all the crumbs to cover generously.
For baking. Ten minutes per inch at the thickest part of the largest fillet is the usual baking time. The salmon should flake when tested with a fork. If not, bake two or three more minutes. My family likes our fish more crispy than most. A rule for us is always to bake five more minutes. I baked my Salmon for 15 minutes. My family went crazy over this dish. Salmon is a very heart healthy protein; it’s high in Omega 3’s. Also, the Dijon mustard compliments the Salmon so well you won’t believe it. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for reading. J. A. Ireland.
