Recipe of the Month part 1

Our family loves salmon.  For years we broiled the salmon and served it with a garlic and butter sauce.  As sides we always serve brown rice and peas.  After so many years, some members in our house lost their love for salmon and nearly dreaded the meal.
I guess you can get to much of a good thing. :-) 
It still makes my mouth water just thinking of the meal.  Oh well, maybe someday it will grow on those members again. 

Sweet Bree went looking for a new recipe. 

This recipe is what she found and it is delicious!  I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do.  Just a little note on the salmon.  We purchase ours at Aldi's for $3.49 a pound.  It is wild caught not farm raised, which is important to me.  It comes in a 1 lb. package which has four individually frozen and wrapped pieces.  This is the best price and quality that I have found. 

Now on to the recipe!

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

8 salmon fillets
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a shallow pan with foil.
Place salmon on foil.
Spread mustard on fillets then season with salt & pepper.
Top with bread crumbs.
Drizzle butter on top.
Bake 15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily. 

We like to serve this with Zuchinni Quiche (see the next post) and Healthy garlic and cheddar biscuits (which we posted the recipe for in January).
