My husband could NOT stop telling me how much he loved this! We used smaller pieces of filet and that worked out fine. I also used cashews instead of pecans. Do NOT skip the reserved sauce! I will definitely make this again.

This was fantastic. I didn't have honey on hand, so I substituted it with organic agave nectar. It was still super tasty, and a huge hit with my family. I will definitely be making this again!

This was a delicious recipe! My husband does not like seafood, but he will eat two servings of this salmon. I usually serve it with either brown rice or homemade mashed potatoes.

It was very good. I loved the sauce. The only troubled I had was the spinach dried out around the salmon and I put the oil on it.

This is truly our all time favorite salmon recipes and my husband asks for it on a regular basis. The only change I make is that we like to serve it over quinoa cooked in vegetable broth to give it flavor. Quinoa have a geat texture that compliments the salmon and spinach in this recipe.

Delicious! Instead of serving it with couscous, we used orzo.
