Pecan Crusted Salmon with Maple Dijon Glaze

12 min

I absolutely love this recipe because it’s both super easy and so yummy. Bonus is that I already had everything I needed in my kitchen. I’m always looking for new ways to cook salmon so after I bought way too many pecans for a different recipe, I decided to use them for a little crunchy salmon crust. Then I had to pair it with this awesome maple dijon glaze. I love the mix of dijon and maple together, such a good combo.

I’d call this semi healthy because it’s salmon, but then it adds some yummy toppings that make it taste incredible. Perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or add this one on top of a salad for some easy meal prep.

4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)

1/2 cup pecans, chopped finely

1/3 cup unseasoned panko breadcrumbs

2 teaspoons dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 tablespoon butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Maple Dijon Glaze

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

3 Tablespoons soy sauce

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

  3. In a small bowl, add the maple syrup, dijon mustard, soy sauce and garlic. Whisk together until combined. Set aside.
  4. Place salmon fillets on the baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and then brush the tops with some of the glaze mixture. Divide the pecan crust mixture between the tops of the salmon. Pressing down slightly to make it stick.
  5. Now drizzle the remaining glaze mixture over the tops of the salmon and pecan mixture.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for about 12 minutes or until salmon is done and pecan crust starts to get brown.
