Pecan and Honey-Glazed Salmon

I love chicken. I do.  Chicken is just something that I do not get tired of. There are so many ways to prepare it. You can bread it, BBQ it, put it in a casserole, combine it with pasta…you name it.  I can eat chicken a couple times a week.  My hubby, however, cannot. He get’s tired of it.  So I decided it was time to find some new chickenless, recipes.

While searching around Pinterest I came across Pecan and Honey-Glazed Salmon:

Making the salmon was a snap.  And the honey and pecans were such a nice touch.  This was a delicious dish that I will definitely be making again.

WeightWatchers Points: 8
Calories: 356 per fillet

1/4 cup honey
4 teaspoons finely chopped pecans
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Combine first three ingredients in a large zip-top bag. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper; add to bag and seal. Marinate in refrigerator at least 15 minutes. I like to marinate mine all day so all that flavor gets infused.
3. Remove fish and nuts from bad, reserving marinade. Place fish on foil lined pan and top with nuts.
4. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting fish twice with reserved marinade while baking.
