Honey Pecan Crusted Salmon

Honey Pecan Crusted Salmon - I love a good pesto and the addition to this recipe takes the honey and pecans to another level.
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 6 oz. salmon fillets
  • cups pecans chopped finely
  • tablespoons of pesto
  • tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; lightly spray foil with cook spray; set aside.
  • Place salmon on prepared sheet. Use knife to remove salmon skin from the fillet. Pat the fish dry with a paper towel.
  • In a bowl stir together pesto, honey and lemon juice. In a separate small bowl mix together the sea salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
  • Season both sides of the salmon with seasoning mix. Then lightly brush one side of the salmon with the honey pesto mixture. Flip the fish over and heavily brush this side with the honey pesto mixture (this will help the nuts stick better).
  • Sprinkle the top with the finely chopped pecans pressing gently to adhere.
  • Roast salmon for 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with additional lemon and honey before you serve.

  1. This is one of THE BEST Salmon recipes I’ve had in a long time … The flavors combine very well and compliment each other in a tasteful way. The pecans add texture to the dish and was a perfect topping. Having cooked salmon in a lot of different ways from the oven, on the grill. frozen to right along the river …I kept the skin on while cooking this but didn’t change the recipe other than that. I just feel the skin keeps the moisture in better and cooks more evenly. Thank you for sharing this GREAT RECIPE.
