Pecan Crusted Baked Salmon
Salmon is an Omega-3 powerhouse! Try and eat fatty fish, like salmon, at least 1-2 times per week. Cooking fish is easy using the Canadian Method (yep, it’s a real thing!): Broil or bake at high heat for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Foolproof!
- 2 (4-6 oz) fillets wild salmon
- 1 Tbsp Canadian Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
- 2 tsp Tamari
- Ground black pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl stir together maple syrup, mustard, tamari and a some cracked black pepper. Brush both sides of the salmon fillets with this mixture and place on a baking sheet.
Divide and sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over the salmon fillets covering the tops completely.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until salmon is no longer opaque in the centre.
The Canadian Method for baking salmon doesn’t typically apply to recipes with a nut crust. Oven temp is reduced to avoid burning the nuts!
