I think the best indicator of a great recipe is when you find yourself making it over and over again. Considering I like trying new things in the kitchen I don’t usually repeat many recipes but this is definitely an exception.
Since making it for the first time in January, I have made it 3 more times and can’t wait to have it again! What’s not to love about a flaky salmon filet spread with creamy honey mustard and topped with a crunchy pecan breadcrumb mixture?
For the asparagus we simply tossed trimmed asparagus spears in a couple tablespoons of olive oil, seasoned it with a Montreal Seasoning, and grilled it for about 10 minutes in a foil packet.
