Beautiful baked salmon with an amaretto butter sauce. My husband's most requested dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Wash salmon and pat dry.
  2. Place skin side down on foil lined baking sheet.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, cover with a thin layer of dijon mustard.
  4. Sprinkle bread crumbers over salmon.
  5. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes depending upon thickness of salmon.
  6. When it is almost done, turn oven to broil, move salmon up and broil for 5 minutes or until breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  7. Remove from oven. Salmon should easily release from skin. Place on plates.
  8. While salmon is broiling, melt butter in a small saucepan.
  9. Add amaretto.
  10. Cook for one minute.
  11. Pour over salmon.
  12. I usually serve this with herb buttered noodles but it would also be really good with a nice rice pilaf.
