Dijon Salmon

This is a wonderful way to prepare fresh dijon salmon fillets in the oven. Be sure to make extra, your family will be begging for more! So many recipes call for 2 cups of bread crumbs or panko, and you end up throwing a cup or more out. You can’t reuse it because you dredged raw fish, meat, or poultry in it. Instead, do what this recipe says, sprinkle it on top. If you have coated the outside correctly, then the bread crumbs stick! No waste here.
