  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.

Fast and Easy way to make Salmon. Cooking for (2). Toasted Walnut pieces in Skillet. Used only about 3Tbs butter, equal parts Honey Syrup (about 2-3Tbs ea), tsp of dried mustard and a capful of Vanilla. This gave the glaze a suble sweetbuttery flavor but NOT overpowering. Added the Walnuts and let it simmer while Salmon cooked. Only used about 2Tbs of oil to coat bottom of pan... Salmon BROWNED nicely. The glaze was the PERFECT compliment to the CRUSTY Salmon and the VERY soft Walnuts. As with most recipes ... I am a TASTER ... I can always ADD but cannot remove an ingredient. THANKS...



This wasn't bad but I think it needed a little zing....maybe a little bit of spicy mustard stirred in. The sauce just seemed too sweet.



The sauce completely overpowers the fish. If you like salmon, stick to a sauce that is more of a compliment.
