Honey Dijon Pecan Crusted Salmon!

I think this could be a new favorite!!!

This crust would also be amazing on a chicken breast!  (I will most definitely be trying that soon)

OK - Supplies:

1 pound of Salmon filet (cut into 2 pieces)
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp whole grain mustard
1 tbsp honey
1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tbsp chopped parsley
Kosher salt
Ground pepper
1 lemon

Preheat oven to 400
First, melt the butter and mix with the two mustards and honey.
Give the pecans a good chop - You don't want huge chunks, but you also don't want pecan dust - split the difference.
Combine the bread crumbs, pecans and parsley in a small bowl - season with a pinch of kosher salt and ground pepper.
On a baking sheet with parchment paper, brush each piece of salmon with the honey/mustard mixture.
Then top with the dry mixture.
Bake at 400 for 13 minutes.  
Awwww Tazzy - are you upset because you already had your dinner?  Somehow Taz always seems to be hungry.  Little stinker boy!
I threw this together pretty quickly!  Add a little slice of lemon for garnish/extra flavor - and I decided to have some simply steam asparagus and rosemary bread.  (I love when you go out to eat at a restaurant and there is a delicious herb oil to dip the bread in!  Tonight I just made a mixture of extra virgin olive oil, good balsamic, pinch of salt and pepper, and 1/2 clove of crushed garlic - yum)  That roll will be gone before you know it - and people at the table will be racing to sop up that oil!
