Quick, easy, elegant, and delicious. I'm not a huge fish lover, but I really really like this dish. The recipe makes 2-4 servings depending on the size your fillets. My husband suggested adding parmesan cheese to the pecan mixture for variety. Maybe I'll try that next time.


  1. Place first four ingredients in a food processor and pulse until pecans are finely chopped. Pour out onto a plate.
  2. Coat salmon fillets on both sides with olive oil. Press filets into pecans until all pecans are used.
  3. Heat small amount of olive oil in a large skillet. Cook salmon about 5 minutes on each side until pecans are lightly brown and salmon is tender.
