I was looking for a new baked salmon recipe, since it's such an easy way to cook it (and one that doesn't make your whole house smell like fish). This one looked easy and interesting, so I gave it a try and we absolutely loved it! My fiancé said it was the best salmon he'd ever had, and went back for seconds. He ate so much salmon that he didn't have room for ice cream, which is a first!
This will become a staple in our house, since it was not only delicious but was so easy to prepare. I can't imagine how another reviewer said it was bland, because we thought it had great flavor - maybe she forgot to add salt? I actually added salt & pepper to the bread crumb mixture, which worked well.
The honey mustard sauce has a nice tang (I only spread a thin layer on the top so it wasn't overpowering), and the bread crumbs gave the fish a good crunch. The pecans were an interesting addition (and one I never would have thought of; might also try with almonds or macadamia nuts sometime), and the fresh parsley was great (although in a pinch, dried parsley would probably work too).
I served it with wild rice and oven-roasted asparagus, and voilá - a gourmet meal on a Tuesday night!
