Made from Pinterest - Maple Pecan Salmon

I never set out to do a blog post from something I make so I apologize for not a great picture, but I wanted to share this really tasty recipe with you,  I had pinned it from Pinterest and tried it yesterday.  It's delicious - don't be put off by the picture!!  It's going to be my new salmon recipe - it might be yours too!!!

The original pin came from the blog I Love My Kids,  I didn't make any changes to the recipe.  

Maple Pecan Salmon

1/2 cup Maple Syrup - the real stuff, not Aunt Jemima

1/4 cup soy sauce

2-4 cloves, garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper


1 cup chopped roasted pecans - I didn't roast them

In the baking dish, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper.  Place salmon in the dish, skin side down.    Coat with maple syrup mixture and then after 15 minutes flip over on the other side and coat with the pecans.  

Cover the dish and marinate the salmon in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, bake salmon around 20 minutes.  Do not overcook!!  


  1. LOL Oh my gosh! Because of your last post, I had the picture of your apple bread in my mind. So when I saw this pic at a quick glace I thought "Oh she made more bread". Then I read the words Maple and Pecan...that sounded good. But you lost me at Salmon! Haha Salmon Bread! Yum!
    Just had to read a bit futher. Now that I realize it's a chunk of salmon and not bread, it looks great! We love salmon around here!
    I'm making your apple bread today though! I'll let you know how it goes.

    1. Hope you like it, it really is delicious!!
