Baklava Fish

I have tried this with salmon and Swai. Both are delicious.


¼ cup melted butter

3 tablespoons whole grain mustard or 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (or your favorite)

1 ½ tablespoons honey

¼ cup walnuts

¼ cup flax meal

4 teaspoons fresh parsley chopped

4 (4 ounce) salmon fillets

Fresh ground pepper

Kosher salt

1 lemon or lime quartered


Preaheat oven to 400. Line shallow roasting pan with non-stick aluminum foil, or spray with non-stick pan spray

In a small bowl, blend butter, mustard, and honey, set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, nuts, and parsley.

Place salmon fillets on prepared pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and brush with honey mustard mixture; sprinkle tops with crumb/nut mixture; if any remains, press into sides of salmon

Bake salmon 12-15 minutes in preheated oven or until it flakes easily with a fork, serve lime or lemon wedge

Mom's Sardines

You know sardines are good for you don't you? Well, they are! Mom made this every time we had people over. You serve it with crackers, or baquette bread.

Ingredients1 Can of Sardines in Water (Bumble Bee, or some name brand. It's safer to use fish in a can from a name brand)
1 lemon cut into halves
1 handful of parsley leaves chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Chop up the onion finely, place in a strainer, rinse with cold water. Place in a bowl. Sprinkle the onion with salt and pepper (use your judgment, start with 1/2 teaspoon each). open the sardines and strain the water from them. Place sardines on top of onions. Add Parsley. String the EVOO over the ingredients. Squeeze 1/2 of the lemon over and combine all the ingredients. Break up the the sardines while combining. I usually add the entire lemon. Taste it first. Add more if you like. Adjust the salt and pepper too if you like.
Enjoy on crackers, or toasted bread.
