¼ cup butter, melted
3 Tbs. Dijon mustard
1 ½ Tbs. honey
¼ cup dry bread crumbs
¼ cup finely chopped pecans
4 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
4 (4 oz.) fillets salmon
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, pecans and parsley. Brush each salmon fillet lightly with honey mustard mixture, and sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the bread crumb mixture.
