And here it is, the most intriguing recipe I found:
- 8 (4 oz) salmon fillets
- 2 c. pecans
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
- Put the pecans in a food processor and chop until fine.
- Add garlic, salt and cayenne pepper to food processor and process just till mixed well.
- Brush the salmon fillets with olive oil and roll in pecan mixture.
- Heat a large non-stick fry pan and lightly saute the salmon on one side until browned.
- Turn and saute until done (approximately 5 to 6 minutes per side).
Also, since I only had two fillets (actually, two halves of one monster fillet), I had to cut the recipe in quarters. Except for the cayenne pepper, which I doubled, because I love cayenne pepper. The salmon ended up spicy and delicious. The pecans added more texture than flavor, but the flavor that they added wasn't out of place or weird. Also, I served my salmon with asiago dill potatoes, which are always a huge hit. Love dill. Love asiago.
Look at how spoiled I am. I didn't even have to do dishes afterward. Hey Kyle, if you don't want me to post weird pictures of you, then don't make weird faces at the camera :)
