Salmon with Mustard Cream and Cheesy Breadcrumbs


This month for Secret Recipe Club I was assigned to Canela Kitchen. I only got to the second page of her blog when I found this delicious recipe. I eat a lot of fish, so I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. And I must say, this wonderful treatment of salmon has rocketed to the top of my favorites list. BBQ salmon, which is mighty good, was always my go to, but I think this recipe may replace it as my first choice...

This recipe is perfect for a weeknight cause it is QUICK QUICK QUICK!! I had it on the table in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. But it is also fancy! So it's perfect for a dinner party too. What a great recipe!

Start by placing the salmon fillets in a baking dish or on a rimmed baking sheet. Pat dry with paper towels so the topping will stick.

In a small bowl, combine the cream, mustard,


salt and honey. Spread this over the fillets.


In another small bowl, combine the butter, panko


and parmesan cheese.


Mix it up with a fork until all the breadcrumbs are moistened. Then spoon the topping over the fish.


Sprinkle with sesame seeds. (I toasted mine in the microwave.)


Bake for about 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily and the topping is golden. Delicious!
