Pecan Crusted Salmon

I have been craving fish for a while now so I decided to make salmon, usually I just use lemon and don't do anything fancy.  I made this salmon using two 4-5 ounce fillets but use could use any size or amount you want because it is all equal parts.

For the Sauce:

equal parts: Dijon Mustard and Honey
two thirds the amount: Melted Butter
*Since I had two fillets, I used 2 tablespoons mustard and honey and 1 1/2 melted butter.

Mix together well. Spread/pour over salmon

For the Crust:

equal parts: Chopped Pecans and Bread Crumbs
*I used 1/4 cup each and had a little left over

Sprinkle over salmon. Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes, or flakes with a fork.

The leftover salmon was great cold in a salad!
