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. —Kara Cook, Elk Ridge, Utah


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


  1. Place salmon fillets in a shallow dish; add milk. 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 cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, brown salmon over medium-high heat in oil. Bake at 400° until fish just begins to flake easily with fork, 8-10 minutes.
