My Love Makes Me Panko Crusted Salmon

Nick has made this salmon dish for me twice now and it is one of my favorites. I watched him make it last time so I could share it with you.

We try to have fish for dinner at least once a week for its health benefits. We choose salmon frequently because it's low in calories and saturated fat and packed with omega 3's which are proven to reduce the risk of heart disease, dry skin, fatigue and even mood swings. (Too bad it didn't help out those mood swings this morning, right baby?)

*4 tablespoons unsalted butter *1 garlic clove, very finely chopped *1/2 cup panko bread crumbs *salt and freshly ground black pepper *2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice *1 tablespoon Dijon mustard *1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce *3 tablespoons honey


Purchase two fresh Atlantic salmon fillets from your local fish market (trust me the fresh stuff tastes better than anything prepackaged.)

Place your fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet. In a small bowl whisk the Dijon mustard and lime juice and then brush it over the salmon and the season with salt and pepper.

In a medium skillet melt the butter and add in garlic. Then add panko bread crumbs stirring until they are toasted and evenly coated in butter.

Pack the panko on top of the fillets generously and roast for 12 minutes or until cooked through (careful not to overcook. Dry rubbery salmon is not tasty).

While the salmon cooks simmer the soy sauce in a small saucepan until is reduces by half and then stir in the honey. When the salmon is out of the oven the last step is to drizzle the soy and honey sauce on top and serve!
