  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly browned. Stir 2 or 3 times to toast uniformly.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine honey with half of the butter. Stir in the toasted pecans, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes to infuse the flavors. Remove from heat, and keep warm.
  3. Melt remaining butter with oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season fish with salt and pepper. Arrange fillets in skillet, and cook until firm to the touch, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Transfer to serving plate, and spoon glaze over top.

My husband and I don't eat turkey so I brought this dish to my very southern in-laws for Thanksgiving, which they all scoffed at until they saw this delicious-looking fish. Well they all wanted ...

Easy to use fast recipe....I think a 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of honey might be better....mine turned out a little too sweet.

We did not enjoy this at all. We found that the glaze and the pecans were too overpowering for the salmon to the point you could not taste salmon at all. Sorry.

Very good. Not as sweet as I thought it would be after reading the other reviews, just sweet enough. I made the recipe as written this time, but next time I think I will mke a few changes. I wo...

This was excellent. I strongly recommend using your best judgement on the amount of butter and honey. I used 3 TB butter and a little over 1 TB honey and it was PLENTY!

This salmon was a nice switch from the usual savoury salmon we eat. The recipe calls for 1.5 lbs of fish and we only had 1 lb of fresh Atlantic salmon, so I tried to modify the sauce ingredient...
