I love this recipe and so easy to make
This is one of my family's favorite way to have salmon! they have changed the name of the recipe, I panicked when I couldn't find it...glad I did!
Personally, I would have given this recipe 5 stars, but gave it 4 because the boyfriend didn't like it. He thought it was too sweet and described it as "sweet potato topping." Once he said it, that is what it tasted like, but I still thought it was very good on this fish.
This was very fast and simple to put together. I made half the recipe as I was only cooking for 2 and it worked out great, though I did have quite a bit of the crust mixture left over. I cooked mine in the same cast iron pan I did the browning in. I think it needed just a little something else to give it a kick of flavor though, maybe a bit more seasoning salt or a little butter cut into the crust mixture.
Resturant quailty recipe! As mentioned in an earlier review, I only made half of the pecan mixture and it was plenty.
