MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH-SALMON

June 19th, 2017 by Chef Bill

MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH SALMON
Your Guests will beg for this recipe!

When Bill McCabe, owner of Bills Great Meals, a personal chef service, makes this salmon for his clients, they usually ask for a copy of the recipe. “This is one of the best recipes for salmon that I use because the pecans are a delicious, different compliment to the fish,” says Chef Bill. “My clients love to make this for their friends and they tell me that everyone always asks for the recipe.” Chef Bill cautions to keep an eye on the fish and never let it cook until pink.
“That means the salmon is overdone,” says Chef Bill.

Salmon with Pecan Crunch Coating
4 (6 oz) salmon fillets sprinkled with salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ Tablespoons honey
1/4 cup Panko or other breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Place fillets, skin side down, in a lightly greased baking dish. Combine mustard, butter and honey and brush on fillets. Combine bread crumbs, pecans and parsley and spoon mixture evenly on top of each fillet. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily

Bills Great Meals, a customized in-home healthy chef service and is available for busy families in the Long Island area. Chef Bill McCabe offers ‘palate-specific’ healthy meals cooked from fresh ingredients in private homes. “Most of my clients have me come every other week and cook about 10 to 20 servings of High Protein – Low Carb Meals. If they want to entertain on the weekends, I am happy to schedule small dinner parties for regular clients. It really saves them time and they appreciate that.”
