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

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by TigerJo

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.

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!
