  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon for garnish

Instructions

  2. In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.
  3. Brush each salmon fillet lightly with honey mustard mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Next, sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the bread crumb mixture.
