These delicious salmon fillets are wonderful for company since they take only a few minutes to prepare, yet they taste like you fussed. I receive requests for the recipe every time I serve them.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + standing Bake: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  • 1. Place salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag; add milk. Seal bag and turn to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes; drain.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine the pecans, flour, brown sugar, seasoned salt and pepper. Coat fillets with pecan mixture, gently pressing into the fish.
  • 3. In a large skillet, brown salmon over medium-high heat in oil. Transfer to a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 4 servings.
