Baked Salmon with Honey and Mustard sauce

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

A totally scrumptious way to serve Salmon.
Baked in the oven and topped with pecan nuts.
Makes a lovely combination of flavours.

4 Salmon fillets
25g melted butter
1 1/2 Tbs Mustard
1 Tbsp Honey
2 Tbsp Breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp Pecan nuts
or salt & pepper

Preheat oven 200 C

Mix melted butter, honey and mustard

Place Salmon fillets on greased baking tray
Spoon sauce on top of each fillet.

Grate breadcrumbs and pecan nuts
Add seasoning and mix together

Sprinkle breadcrumb & nut mixture
on top of Salmon and place in oven.

Bake for about 15 min. Salmon should
flake easily with a fork when cooked.

Serve with side of your choice and enjoy!
I served mine with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables.

Tip: A soft nut like pecan or walnut goes well with the texture of the salmon. I have used chopped cashew nuts mixed with cornflakes as a topping before but found the cashews too hard for the texture of the fish.

FRUGAL TIP: Buy a whole fresh Salmon from the fish counter and ask the fish monger to fillet it for you. It will cost you half the price. The salmon I bought made 16 individual fillets. I packed them into 4 packs of 4 fillets into freezer bags. Each salmon meal cost 3.20 GBP coming up to 80p per fillet. Not bad for Salmon if you ask me. :-)
Keep your eyes open for Specials. Over Christmas, whole salmon was half price at Tesco and I believe they will run that same special over Easter. :-)
