Easy honey mustard salmon

Prepare this salmon for any occasion - a simple family dinner or even a more elegant night of entertaining. It takes just a few seconds to prepare, and feels so much more sophisticated than a plain piece of fish. And, a bonus, because of the oil and honey that gets smeared on it, this fish won't get dried out if you leave it baking for a bit too long.

4 salmon fillets of even thickness
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Preheat the oven to 350*.

Put the salmon fillets in a small glass or disposable aluminum pan. Be sure the fillets are not touching each other. (I always use disposables for fish so I can put them right in the trash when I'm done and get rid of the fish smell!)

Combine the honey, mustard and oil in a small cup or bowl. Spread the mixture evenly over the salmon fillets.

Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly on top of the honey-mustard paste.

Bake the salmon uncovered for about 30 minutes for medium rare. Serve immediately.
