Honey Pecan Crusted Salmon

Salmon from Costco is the best! Here is another way I like to prepare it - with a slightly sweet pecan crust:

Honey Pecan Crusted Salmon

4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
4 tablespoons honey (I used a special lavender honey, but any honey will work)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons melted butter
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set the salmon fillets on the paper. Sprinkle each fillet with salt and then spread with 1 tablespoon honey.

Combine pecans, panko, rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper with 2 tablespoons butter. Press the crumb mixture onto the top of the salmon. Drizzle the remaining butter over the top of the salmon.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until the salmon is cooked and the crust starts to slightly brown.
