National Pralines Day
Finally, a day I could manage to turn into a savory thing. I was getting kind of sick of all the sweets! This salmon is fantastic! Serve with some roasted veggies and brown rice (save some sauce to go over the rice) and you have an excellent dinner!
12 ounces boned, skinned salmon fillet, cut into 2 pieces
About 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Rinse the salmon and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, butter, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
- Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn fish over. Spoon pecan mixture evenly over fish and broil again, checking frequently to be sure nuts do not scorch, until fish is opaque, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
- With a wide spatula, transfer fish to serving plate.
