Salmon Fillets With Brown Sugar Pecan Glaze

Diana Rattray
Serve these flavorful salmon steaks with rice and fresh steamed vegetables for a super weekend meal.


  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons bourbon or water
  • 4 salmon fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Olive oil


In a small nonstick pan, brown the pecans lightly over medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar, butter, and bourbon or water; heat until simmering. Set aside.

Heat oven to 425°.

In an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat; heat the olive oil. Add salmon, skin side down and sear for about 2 minutes. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast the fillets for 5 minutes. Spoon glaze over salmon fillets and continue roasting for about 3 to 5 minutes longer, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Turn the oven off and let salmon stand in the oven for 2 minutes.
Serves 4.

Very good recipe with few changes!, Member rosadra

I made this last night for dinner & I must say that it was definitely delicious. I made Uncle Ben's Rice Pilaf and corn for veggies. I cooked the Salmon in the oven at 425 then after few minutes I changed the temperature to 350 to cook them a little longer. Below are a few other changes: - 1/2 cup of Pecans - I used water instead of bourbon - I bought 3 - (6 ounces each) of Salmon & just cut them in half to make more servings - I added Garlic powder to the Salmon in addition to salt & pepper - After I seared the Salmon then I transferred them to a glass baking dish and poured the olive oil from the frying pan into the baking dish
