If you’re looking for an easy dish to serve to company, try this elegant entree. Flaky salmon fillets are draped with a sweet pecan glaze. Canadian reader Buffy Sias sent the recipe from her home in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan. Add pecans and honey; cook over medium-low heat until bubbly, 8-10 minutes. Serve with salmon.
