Day #88 - Pecan Crusted Salmon

This salmon recipe is so simple and extremely quick! The potatoes took the longest to cook and that only took 25 minutes! I've never had salmon with any kind of "coating" so this was new for me. I usually like it grilled and plain with maybe some salt and pepper. But this was REALLY good - The pecans give it a little crunch and there's a slight hint of something sweet! It was fabulous!


2 Salmon Fillets (6 oz each)
2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Finely Chopped Pecans
1/2 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Pepper
3 Tbsp EVOO


Cut salmon fillets in half so you have a total of four 3 oz portions. Place the salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag. Add milk, seal bag and turn to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes and then drain.

Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine the pecans, flour, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Coat fillets with pecan mixture, gently pressing into the fish.

In a large skillet, brown salmon in oil over medium-high heat. Transfer to a baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
