Apple Pecan Crusted Salmon over Wild Rice

Simple Fall flavors. Fresh cranberries and apples in the wild rice topped with pecan crusted apple salmon. To make this easy and quick I use a box of wild rice, (such as Uncle Bens or any favorite brand).

ingredients

  • 2 lbs salmon fillets, 4 1/2 lb pieces
  • 10 tablespoons apple jelly
  • 4 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 tablespoon thyme, fresh and chopped fine (if dried 1/2 tablespoon)
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, fresh and chopped fine (or if dried 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 13 cup pecans, chopped fine (just buy a small pkg prechopped)
  • salt and pepper
  • Wild Rice

  • 5 12 ounces wild rice, quick cooking (1 box, Uncle Bens or similar will work fine)
  • 12 cup dried cranberries, and diced
  • 12 cup apple, granny smith diced fine
  • chicken stock

directions

  • Make the apple glaze. In a microwavable bowl add the apple jelly and white wine to combine. Takes about 1 minute on medium. Remove and stir in the rosemary and thyme. Let cool a few minutes.
  • Let the salmon come to room temperature Brush on the apple glaze, add salt and pepper, just a little to each fillet and then sprinkle the top with pecans. Save the extra glaze to drizzle over the salmon.
  • Place the salmon on a baking/cookie sheet lined with parchment or foil and cook at 400F for about 15-20. Cooking time will vary on the thickness and size of the fillets. Half way through, drizzle more glaze on the fillets.
  • Cook the rice according to directions. But rather than using water -- substitute chicken broth for a rich flavor. Half way through cooking the rice which depending on what brand you get will be between 10 and 25 minutes, add the diced apples and cranberries.
  • Serve with roasted green beans, broccoli, brussels sprouts or asparagus. Cook right along with the fish. Just toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast. Nothing more needed.

    What a wonderful meal!!!! So VERY TASTY, yet so uncomplicated to make. This would be a wonderful "company meal" as it looks and tastes like the cook has worked VERY hard to produce the wonderful flavours...yet it all comes together quickly and easily. I only used half the glaze, so will reduce the amount in the future (and this will definitely be served again). The rice was a perfect accompaniment...loved the look and taste of the crancerries and apples. Brussels sprouts made a lovley side to this terrific recipe. Thanks SarasotaCook!
