Prep

  1. Pine nuts - You can leave the pine nuts raw for the salad or, if you prefer you can toast them in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until golden, ~4 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Salmon - Divide fish up into number of servings you're making. Rinse and dry fish. Lightly salt and pepper.
  3. Crust - Chop parsley. Melt butter in the microwave (~1 minute should do). Mix butter with Dijon, maple syrup, soy sauce, panko, and parsley.
  4. Apples - Slice.

I loved this dish! We made a few modifications to the salad: I used spring mix instead of spinach (not a big spinach salad fan) and added bleu cheese. Overall, it got two thumbs up from both me and my picky husband. Will make again!

The salmon dish tasted good (coming from someone who usually dislikes fish). The salad was okay. The spinach seemed drenched by the vinegrette. I would consider making it again, but double the amount of spinach used or half the amount of vinegrette used.

We thought it was a little heavy on the Dijon, but definitely tasty! Instead of buying bread crumbs in order to have half a cup for the rec8pe, we just toasted a piece of bread and crumbled it in the blender.

This is phenomenal. The flavors are on point. If you have never tried salmon before this is the perfect place to start.

The salmon was absolutely delicious! Wow. The salad was nothing special. I'd definitely make the salmon again with a different salad or side.
