Company-Ready Crusted Salmon

Dietitians suggest two servings of fish a week. Salmon is one of the highest in those omega-3 fatty acids that help to prevent heart disease. “My husband had high cholesterol so I created this heart-healthy recipe. Now I serve it to guests all the time…even fish-haters rave and ask for the recipe!” Susan Robenson - Hot Springs, Arkansas

    My husband could NOT stop telling me how much he loved this! We used smaller pieces of filet and that worked out fine. I also used cashews instead of pecans. Do NOT skip the reserved sauce! I will definitely make this again.

    This was fantastic. I didn't have honey on hand, so I substituted it with organic agave nectar. It was still super tasty, and a huge hit with my family. I will definitely be making this again!

    This was a delicious recipe! My husband does not like seafood, but he will eat two servings of this salmon. I usually serve it with either brown rice or homemade mashed potatoes.

    It was very good. I loved the sauce. The only troubled I had was the spinach dried out around the salmon and I put the oil on it.

    This is truly our all time favorite salmon recipes and my husband asks for it on a regular basis. The only change I make is that we like to serve it over quinoa cooked in vegetable broth to give it flavor. Quinoa have a geat texture that compliments the salmon and spinach in this recipe.

    Delicious! Instead of serving it with couscous, we used orzo.
