Pecan Crusted Salmon

A couple of years ago I helped publish a cookbook for my daughter’s cheerleading team, for which many nights were spent either inputting recipes, editing, re-editing, and re-editing some more. This project turned into our baby for myself and  3 board members. Almost 4 months later we were very pleased with the results as well as the profits from this huge fundraiser. I submitted several of my own recipes but this one is by far one of my favorites!

Pecan Crusted Salmon

Pecan Crusted Salmon

2 salmon filets

2 T mayo

1/2 c finely chopped pecans

1/3 c Italian bread crumbs

2 T grated Parmesan cheese

1 T minced parsley

1 T butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425°. Place salmon skin side down in a greased 11×7 baking dish. Spread 1 tablespoon mayo over each filet. In a small bowl, combine pecans, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and butter; spoon over salmon. Bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
