Salmon with Pecan Honey Glaze recipe

I am not a fish lover, but I try to set a good example for my kids and make it every other week at least. Oddly enough I love sushi and seafood, just not a cooked fish. There are two ways I can eat cooked fish- one for salmon, one for tilapia. Here is the Salmon option found on my beloved allrecipes.com!



Salmon with Pecan Honey Glaze

for 4 servings


Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecan halves or pieces
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly browned. Stir 2 or 3 times to toast uniformly.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine honey with half of the butter. Stir in the toasted pecans, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes to infuse the flavors. Remove from heat, and keep warm.
  3. Melt remaining butter with oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season fish with salt and pepper. Arrange fillets in skillet, and cook until firm to the touch, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Transfer to serving plate, and spoon glaze over top.



I have tried Walnuts in place of Pecans and it was ok, but Pecans are much tastier. I think I also prefer a dark honey. Today I used a very light organic honey and it wasn't quite the usual to me! Otherwise, this is very easy and delicious! Serve with green beans, your choice of bread and applesauce.
