Healthy recipe . . .

While I do not profess to be a chef I do like to cook, especially to try new and interesting recipes. Since we are trying to eat healthier I found a recipe for salmon on Taste of Home and we love it. Try it, I think you will like it too.

Pecan-Crusted Salmon

2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Cucumber Sauce:
1/2 cup chopped seeded, peeled cucumber
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/8 teaspoon dill weed
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Place salmon skin side down in a greased 11-in. x 7-in baking dish.
Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise over each fillet.

In a small bowl, combine the pecans, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley and butter; spoon over salmon. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cucumber sauce ingredients. Serve with the salmon. Yield: 2 servings
