Friday Foodspiration: Pecan Crusted Salmon

This pecan crust turned me into a salmon fan!

Better yet, it is a one pan meal packed with Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and antioxidants.  These are not just good for your insides, but also required for strong nails, glowing skin, and healthy hair on the outside.

I’d say this is a perfect anti aging meal!


  • 1 cup Pecans, toasted and crushed

  • 1/2 tsp Oregano

  • 1/8 tsp Smoked Paprika

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil

  • 2 Salmon Fillets

  • 1/2 lb Asparagus

  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes

  • 1 tbs Olive Oil

  • 3/4 tsp Salt

  • 1/2 tsp Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Meanwhile, cover a rimmed baking sheet with foil and cooking spray, placing salmon on top.

  2. Combine pecans, oregano, paprika, and coconut oil in a small bowl.  Spread over two salmon fillets and pat down gently so that the mixture sticks.

  3. Toss vegetables with olive oil and place on baking dish next to the salmon.

  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over both salmon and vegetables.

  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until topping is lightly brown and fish flakes.
