I made this recipe up after watching QVC's 48 dollar salmon. I liked the idea of theirs a lot; theirs was baked, mine is fried. This is a 3 bowl recipe like chicken fried steak but with salmon. If you are looking for low fat recipes, this isn't it, lol, but it does taste good. I do not use salt myself but I know other people do.
- 1⁄4 cup pecans
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 4 tablespoons oil
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 8 ounces salmon fillets
- Crush pecans until fine; add pecans to Panko bread crumbs.
- Heat pan with oil; you may need more oil.
- Beat egg in another bowl.
- In another bowl have flour, salt if using, and pepper.
- I buy the frozen indivudual salmon fillets and microwave them a touch so they are not cooked but not frozen either.
- Dredge fish in the flour to which salt and pepper have been added.
- Shake off excess flour.
- Dip into egg and then into pecan bread crumb mixture.
- Put in hot skillet skin side down.
- Fry until golden; do not move fillets around a lot.
- Flip over; fry on other side until golden and fish in center is cooked to your liking.
- Touch it lightly like steak; be careful not to burn yourself. You can also check doneness with a knife.
Thought I had everything ready to go with this only to discover no pecan nuts so had to go with walnuts otherwise followed recipe as written (scaled back for 3 with 3 fillets weighing hearly 700grams) but only used less than half of the panko crumbing mix, so would cut back on that in future and it was the first time I have done crumbed salmon and it was a different experience but enjoyable but would look at serving it with a lemon wedge and a light tartare sauce next time. thank you Dienia B, made for Everyday A Holiday.
