Nut Crusted Sensational Salmon


Here's a favorite recipe of mine that my guests love and that keep my kids coming back for more.


If you whisk together the second through fifth ingredients (mustard through garlic), it'll make a mean salad dressing that's practically fat-free and flavor-full!

  • 1-1/2 lb. salmon fillet (around 1 inch thick)
  • 1 Tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon horseradish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon or lime juice

1 Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 Combine mustard, horseradish sauce, lemon or lime juice, balsamic vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl. Whisk together.
