Amaretto Salmon

This is one of my absolute favorite dishes.

One salmon filet (however much you need to feed your group)
salt and pepper
dijon mustard
Italian bread crumbs (I use the ones in the blue cannister that you buy on the flour aisle)
1/2 stick butter
1 shot of amaretto liquor

Wash and pat dry your salmon, place on a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, spread on a thin layer of dijon mustard. Follow with a thin layer of bread crumbs. Bake at 350 for 20 - 25 minutes or until just shy of done.  When the salmon is almost done, turn the oven to broil, move the rack and pan up and cook for about 5 minutes or until it is nicely browned. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium heat and add the shot of amaretto. Remove fish from oven. Remove to plate. The skin should stick to the foil. Cover with butter sauce and serve!! It's delicious!

Great left over on top of a salad. Good stuff!
