Salmon honey mustard with toasted pecans
A salmon bake featuring homemade honey mustard sauce and a toasted pecan topping.
- 2 lb salmon filet or side
- 1/2 cup mustard whole grain
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 lemon zested & juiced (~2 tbsp juice)
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp Purely Seasoning Original
- 1/8 tsp black pepper coarse ground
- 1/2 cup pecans
- cooking oil high heat
Preheat oven to 400º F.
Mix together all the topping ingredients besides the pecans and oil.
Place salmon on an oiled pan or baking sheet. Cover the salmon with the honey mustard sauce.
Bake salmon for 12-14 minutes. Remove once it is 5-10º F below how you would like it cooked (internal temp). While the salmon is cooking, start the pecans.
Add pecans to separate pan over medium heat. Stir often. Toast until fragrant. About 3-4 minutes.
Once the salmon is done, change the oven to its broil function. Broil on high for 2-3 minutes to crisp up the outside. Remove once it is cooked to your liking.
Plate the salmon and top with the toasted pecans. Finish with Purely Seasoning Original to taste.
