Oven Baked Salmon with Almonds and Pecans

When it comes to seafood, salmon is definitely one of my favorites.  Heart healthy and mild tasting, salmon can be grilled, pan cooked or baked.  This simple preparation comes together quickly and the ingredients complement the mild sweetness of the salmon without overpowering it.  You will love it!

  • 1 lb. salmon
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • maple seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp. chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • cooking spray


Line a baking pan with foil or parchment and mist with cooking spray.  Preheat the oven to 350º.  Cut the salmon lengthwise into 2 pieces and arrange in the pan skin side down.

Season lightly with salt.  Sprinkle each piece of fish with 1 tsp. brown sugar, maple seasoning, and 1 tbsp. of chopped nuts.  Cut the butter into fine slivers and arrange over the fish.

Bake for 25 minutes at 350º.  The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Dinner is served, with a side of broccoli and Homemade Potato Chips!

Notes: ♪♫ Salmon is usually available year-round where we live, but if you can’t find fresh caught then it’s perfectly fine to buy frozen.  The maple seasoning used in this recipe goes really well with salmon and is gluten free!
