This tender salmon is marinated in deliciousness so it’s so full of flavor by time you’re ready to eat. It would be amazing served over rice, on a salad, or even on it’s own. I love the crunch that the pecan crust adds to the equation. This is sure to be a winner even among people that aren’t 100% sold on eating seafood.

You shouldn’t be scared to attempt salmon, you should embrace it! It’s one of my favorite ways to eat fish and the possibilities for toppings are endless. Be sure you get a great cut of salmon from your grocer. I always ask them what kind of fresh salmon they have in and usually they can tell you which types will taste stronger than others based on where they were caught. We prefer a mild salmon at our house, but some love a bolder flavor. It’s fun to try the different regions!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 1½-2 lbs. salmon slab or 6 salmon fillets
  • 2-3 cups chopped pecans
  • Garnish: chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 275F and spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, garlic, black pepper, bourbon, and lemon juice. Whisk until well blended. Bring the glaze to a boil over medium heat and stir often. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the mixture until it thickens and reduces, approximately 3-5 minutes. Stir the glaze often.
  3. Place the salmon, skin-side-down, on the prepared dish. Brush the salmon with the prepared glaze. Cover the salmon with pecans and press the pecans firmly into the salmon. Cook for 10 minutes at 275F.
  4. Drizzle additional glaze over the salmon and cook another 5-10 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part, registers 120F.
  5. Remove the salmon from the oven and turn the oven to broil.
  6. Drizzle the salmon with glaze and place it in the oven. Broil 1-2 minutes, just until the pecans turn golden. **Watch the salmon while it broils – the pecans can burn quickly. The final internal temperature should be 125F-130F. Remove the salmon from the oven and allow it to cool, in the dish, 5-10 minutes before serving.
  7. Enjoy
