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
  1. 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.

  2. Divide and sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over the salmon fillets covering the tops completely.

  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until salmon is no longer opaque in the centre.

Recipe Notes

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!
