Cranberry Pecan Crusted Salmon

Course Main Dish
Cuisine Seafood


  • 1/4 cup pecans finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 2 6oz salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine pecans, panko, salt, and parsley in a small bowl. Melt butter and pour over pecan mixture, tossing to coat.
  • Pat salmon dry and spread with cranberry sauce, about 2 tbsp per fillet, then top with pecan topping.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, until salmon is tender and flakes easily with a fork. The general rule of thumb is 10 minutes of cook time per inch of thickness, which should help you adjust times based on the cut used.
