Finally I have found a new fun way to switch up my salmon! We generally try to eat pretty healthy most nights of the work week so it was nice to find a new way to cook a type of fish that graces my kitchen table at least once every other week. This creation comes from Mrs. How Sweet. We served this on a salad.
Cinnamon Pecan Crusted Salmon
1 pound of salmon, cut into 4 pieces, or 4 salmon filets
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (or glaze)
2/3 cup pecans, finely ground in a food processor
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add ground pecans to a large plate and stir in cinnamon. Brush salmon pieces with BBQ sauce/glaze. Coat with pecan mixture, pressing so the mixture sticks.
Heat a skillet on medium high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Brown salmon on each side until pecan crust is golden. Remove and put on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork.
