A delicious fish dish for two that is quick and easy, yet kind of elegant. I've only done this with salmon but I imagine this method would work with any firm-fleshed fish that takes well to broiling. I found this in one of my favorite recipes sources....Sunset.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse salmon and pat dry, then sprinkle all over with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, butter, lemon juice and 1/4 tsp.
  3. salt.
  4. Place salmon on a large baking sheet; broil 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes; with a wide spatula, turn the fillets over and then spoon pecan mixture evenly over fillets and broil again, checking frequently to be sure nuts do not scorch.
  5. Broil until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in the center of the thickest part, 1-2 minutes longer.
  6. Transfer fillets to a serving plate with a wide spatula.
