- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. 

- Combine mustard, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, rosemary, honey, salt, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Combine bread crumbs, walnuts, and oil in another small bowl.

- Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the mustard mixture over the fish and sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Lightly coat with cooking spray.

- Bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness.

- Garnish with parsley or lemon wedges and serve!
