  1. Delicious! We are still swooning over this restaurant quality salmon! I was using portioned 4oz filets & wanted this to be (ahem) a tad bit more diet friendly so omitted the slitting & stuffing with 1/2 cup butter in steps #3 & #4. I sprayed the pan & jumped right to the good part---- the sugar & pecans. This really only takes minutes to prep and the reward is awesome. The salmon comes out with a candied nut topping & lots of sticky, sweet glaze to spoon onto the rice. Take a bite and sigh contentedly. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will definitely be making it again! Discovered during Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.
