Baked Dijon Salmon

1/4 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs (or Ritz cracker crumbs) (optional)
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley (dried parsley also works fine)
4 (4 ounce) salmon fillets
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lemon, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley. Brush each salmon fillet lightly with honey mustard mixture and sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the bread crumb mixture. Bake salmon 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with a wedge of lemon or sprinkle lightly with lemon juice. Serves 4.
