Pecan Encrusted Salmon

salmonThis is my all time favorite salmon recipe that I have been making for years! It is super easy and the whole family likes it so it’s on repeat at our house. I like to look at the Whole Foods app each week and buy the fresh wild salmon when it  goes on sale. The salmon pairs well with anything. I did sautéed spinach, peppers and onions and sweet potatoes (that were still in the oven). Simple and delicious!

Ingredients: 

  • (4) 4oz wild caught salmon fillets (I like to buy Simply Balanced from Target)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp almond meal (or bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper.  Combine honey with mustard in small bowl and brush over salmon.  Mix breadcrumbs with chopped pecans and sprinkle over salmon, pressing into salmon so it sticks.  Bake 10-15 minutes or until cooked throughout.
