Cranberry-Mustard Crusted Salmon recipe

Salmon and cranberries are a natural match - they pair both in pink coloration and in subtle sweetness, making for a great presentation. This quick recipe makes regular kitchen ingredients something very special.


4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
¾ cup finely chopped walnuts
¼ cup chopped dried cranberries
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon grated orange zest


1) Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a baking sheet; season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper. Arrange fillets evenly on baking sheet.

2) In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Press mixture onto top side of fillets. Bake until topping is light golden, about 20 minutes. Remove and serve.
