6 servings (serving size: about 4 1/2 ounces salmon and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Cereal nuggets create a crunchy topping for meaty salmon. Serve with roasted potatoes and asparagus.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place salmon in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Combine onion and the next 8 ingredients (onion through thyme); pour over salmon. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning occasionally.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350º.

Step 3

Place cereal and pecans in a baking pan. Bake at 350º for 7 minutes or until toasted. Place mixture in a food processor; pulse 4 times or until finely chopped.

Step 4

Remove salmon from marinade; reserve marinade. Arrange the salmon diagonally on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt. Combine 2 tablespoons of sugar, honey, and 1 1/2 teaspoons water, stirring with a whisk. Spread honey mixture over salmon; sprinkle with cereal mixture, gently pressing into salmon. Bake at 350º for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Step 5

While salmon bakes, place reserved marinade in a small saucepan. Discard tarragon and thyme. Bring marinade to a boil over medium-high heat; cook until reduced to 3/4 cup (about 10 minutes). Serve sauce with salmon.
