Reviews for Pecan Salmon Casserole
"This was very good. The only thing I did different was not to put the potato chips on top. The pecans added a nice crunch and taste. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"Made this for a gathering with a lot of people. It serves an army and still had leftovers. I did use salad macaroni as I didn't have shells. 16 oz. was just too much pasta so removed about an oversize cup after it was cooked. Used frozen sockeye that I cooked in a little butter with Johnny's seasoning that equaled about 2 cups of salmon chunks. The only other change I made was using red and yellow peppers as I didn't have any pimento. You say it serves 16 but I would say in a gathering with other food it will easily serve 30. Very good."
