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

"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."

    Why does the prep time say 31 minutes??? Looks like a quick ans straight forward recipe. Am I missing something? Is it supposed to marinate in the wet mix???

    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!

    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!

    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!

    I don't like mustard but went ahead and used it. Fortunately you couldn't taste it much with the finally results. I also put this under the broiler for a few minutes when it was done to brown the top. This tasted good.

    YUM! What a delicious combination of flavors and textures. The mustard (I used a coarse country dijon), honey and walnuts were sooooooo good with the salmon. Directions for cooking were perfect. The only change I will make next time is to decrease the breadcrumbs to 1/8 cup and increase the chopped walnuts to 1/2 cup. Thanks for a keeper! I'm putting this recipe into my best of the best file. :)

    This is a great recipe, and very different from anything I've ever tried on salmon. The only (minor) changes for me: Used macadamia nuts instead of walnuts, and substituted brown sugar for the honey, as that was what I had on hand. It totally worked! My salmon looked just like the picture! Thanks for sharing!

    Delicious and easy! My family really liked the coating. Since we like our food sweet, I added an extra tablespoon of honey and I substituted graham cracker crumbs for the breadcrumbs.

    This is a really outstanding recipe - easy enough for a weekday but special enough for a dinner party. I substituted olive oil for butter & used less than 1/4 cup for health reasons. I also found that it took much longer to cook than the recipe suggested - about 1/2 hour in my convection oven.

    Amazing! I loved the combination of the mustard and honey.. then the crunch from the walnuts.. yum! I used olive oil in place of the butter. Will definitely have to make this often! Thanks!
