We have salmon once a week & I felt in a rut w/same old recipes. I made this last night & everyone LOVED it! The only change I made was to slightly increase the amount of pecans and decrease the amount of breadcrumbs. So rather than be a 50/50 split, the topping was probably more like 2/3 pecans and 1/3 breadcrumbs. The mustard/butter/honey mixture was the perfect zip from the Dijon tempered with the sweetness from the honey & butter. This is going into my cookbook (where only recipes to be made again and again and again go) and will be made frequently. Thanks for sharing!
