Pecan-Crusted Salmon

I fix salmon about every week, and this recipe from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking (precursor to Simple & Delicious) is definitely a keeper! Easy enough to make for just Jay and I, but fancy enough to serve for company. The sweet AND savory coating with the rich pecan crunch is delicious!

Pecan-Crusted Salmon

From Quick Cooking

4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
2 cups milk
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
2 teaspoons pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Place salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag; add milk. Seal bag and turn to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes; drain. 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. In a large skillet, brown salmon in oil over medium-high heat. Transfer to a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 4 servings.
