I love to cook salmon!

I love to bake it quickly in the oven with a wonderful parmesan and pecan coated crust.  Talk about good!  The pecans give the coating a nutty bite while the parmesan adds a little saltiness.  It’s a great crust that would go well even on top of vegetables.

Flaky and delicious salmon cooked perfectly, surrounded by a the slightly salty taste of the parmesan and the crispiness of the pecans.  The salmon cooks quickly and it’s so pretty and flavorful served on a bed of brown rice.

This recipe is easy folks.  Here’s all you need to do…

Rough chop some pecans, about two cups is the perfect amount to coat four salmon fillets.  Place the chopped pecans into a bowl and mix in a half cup of shredded parmesan, a little dried basil, salt and pepper.  Dip each piece of salmon in melted butter, coat with the pecan mixture and bake for about 10 minutes.
