I absolutely love this recipe because it’s both super easy and so yummy. Bonus is that I already had everything I needed in my kitchen. I’m always looking for new ways to cook salmon so after I bought way too many pecans for a different recipe, I decided to use them for a little crunchy salmon crust. Then I had to pair it with this awesome maple dijon glaze. I love the mix of dijon and maple together, such a good combo.
I’d call this semi healthy because it’s salmon, but then it adds some yummy toppings that make it taste incredible. Perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or add this one on top of a salad for some easy meal prep.
