List of Ingredients

  • 2 lb. wild salmon fillet
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup honey 
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 lemon 
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch 

For Pecan Crust

  • ½  cup pecan halves 
  • ½  Panko 
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. For the pecan crust: combine pecans, Panko, and parsley and blend them together until what’s left is the resemblance of crumbs. Season with salt and pepper and dredge the salmon fillet in the pecan mixture. 
  3. Melt the butter on an oven-proof skillet over medium heat and add salmon to the skillet. Sear it on both sides until golden brown (about 1 minute each side). 
  4. Place in oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. 
  5. For the lemon glaze: combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, honey, lemon juice and cornstarch. Place in a small saucepan over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and let it simmer until a bit thickened (about 3 minutes). 
  6. Serve salmon with lemon glaze.
