salmon has a lot going for it. first, it's a yummy firm fish, one could even call it "meaty". second, it's super healthy and full of delicious-sounding stuff like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin d. and third, it's fairly easy to find on sale. ooo-wee! that's my kind of fish.
this recipe is a great combo of tangy mustard and sweet honey flavors, and has great crunch from the pecans. i think it highlights the the flavor and meatiness of the salmon really well. just... trust me!
