I rarely use the same salmon recipe twice (except for my very favorite here)......there are so many variations you can prepare in so many ways. So I just keep track and post these, especially when it requires few ingredients and little time. A great entree in which many sides dishes are a nice accompaniment. Perfect for a busy weeknight dinner.
PANKO CRUSTED HONEY MUSTARD SALMON (2 servings)
2 (4-6 oz) salmon fillets
3/4 Tbsp Dijon mustard
3/4 Tbsp honey
1/2 -1 tsp minced fresh garlic
1/4 - 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp EVOO
Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a baking dish large enough to fit the fillets in with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, honey, and garlic.
In a shallow dish toss together Panko bread crumbs, parsley, and lemon zest. Add olive oil to mixture then stir to coat.
Brush each salmon fillet with honey mustard mixture, season with S&P, and transfer to bread crumb mixture, honey mustard side down. Then brush the other side of the salmon (that's now facing up) with honey mustard mixture, season lightly with S&P, and flip over to coat both sides with bread mixture. Transfer to baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven 13-15 minutes until salmon has cooked through. Serve warm with lemon wedges if desired.
