Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

The coating of Dijon mustard and bread crumbs keeps the fish so moist, don't forget to leave the skin on the fish it also helps to lock in moisture, I use Kittencal's Seasoned Dry Italian Breadcrumbs for this

Delicious. Have made this a couple of times and find that it takes a little longer to cook than listed. Love this with applesauce.
