Baklava Salmon (Salmon With Honey, Butter, Walnuts, and Mustard)

Total Time
Prep 31 mins
Cook 20 mins

One of my friends deemed this "Baklava Salmon" and the name stuck. The salmon & mustard go well with the honey, butter, and walnuts. We usually serve this with rice and steamed carrots or broccoli.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°; Line shallow roasting pan with non-stick aluminum foil, or spray with non-stick pan spray.
  2. In small bowl, blend butter, mustard, and honey, set aside; in another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, nuts, and parsley.
  3. Place salmon fillets on prepared pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and brush with honey-mustard mixture; sprinkle tops with crumb/nut mixture; if any remains, press into sides of salmon.
  4. Bake salmon 12-15 minutes in preheated oven, or until it flakes easily with a fork, serve with lime or lemon wedge.

I know this recipe by heart, I've made it so many times! It's the best way I've ever had salmon, hands down. Thank you so much!

I can't even thank you enough for this recipe. I'm a fan of plain salmon---I'll eat it any way. But I've got some picky eaters here, and let me say this. My 3 year old has turned her nose up at mac & cheese if it isn't *exactly* what she expects (yeah, weird I know). Well, she ate this. Fork after fork, and even w/sound effects "yummmmy! I like salmon" she said. Amazing. The combination of sweet, tangy, crunchy, nutty and the tender, mild salmon made her dad and I happy campers as well. So delicious and easy to mix up. I may even try this over chicken one of these days. Thanks for posting!

Fantastic salmon - we used horseradish mustard instead of dijon and it was amazing with the honey, walnuts, and butter in the topping. Have made several times now. Highly recommended, thanks!
