This nutty coating and cool sauce turn ordinary salmon into something special. "My husband was thrilled the first time I served this," says Cheryl Bydowdki of Punta Gorda, Florida.

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • CUCUMBER SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/8 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

  1. Place salmon skin side down in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise over each fillet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the pecans, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley and butter; spoon over salmon. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cucumber sauce ingredients. Serve with the salmon.
