Honey Dijon Baken Fish

2 T butter, melted
3 T Dijon mustard
1 T honey
1/4 c. dry bread crumbs
1/4 c. finely chopped pecans
4 t. chopped fresh parsley
4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
salt and pepper to taste
1 t. lemon juice (opt.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey (and opt. lemon juice if you're not using salmon). Set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.
Brush each salmon fillet lightly with honey mustard mixture, and sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the bread crumb mixture.
Bake salmon 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Season with salt and pepper.

*This was great! We tried it on flounder with lemon juice and it was just as good as with salmon. Also, I was low on bread crumbs so I also added in flax seed meal. And if you don't have pecans, try another nut or seed (I've used hemp seed before which works). The colors of this meal are great when served with slightly crunchy asparagus! We didn't even need anything else on our plate besides these the fish and greens.
