Ingredients

  • cup pecans
  • ½ cup real maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 pound fresh wild-caught salmon fillet
  • 1 orange sliced

Instructions

  • Toast pecans over medium-high heat, stirring often until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool, chop and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together maple syrup, orange zest, rosemary, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Pour mixture over salmon in a shallow baking dish. Marinate in fridge 1 to 4 hours, rotating halfway.
  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Place salmon on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet skin side down. Discard extra marinade and top salmon with orange slices. Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness, until center is cooked and meat flakes with a fork. 
  • Top with roasted pecans and salt to taste if needed. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • To save time you can skip marinating and simply pour glaze over salmon then roast, but it won't be as flavorful
  • Roasting on foil or parchment makes for easy cleanup. Discard it after roasting and give baking sheet a light clean.
  • Try adding veggies to bake at the same time as the salmon, such as asparagus, tomato, zucchini, cauliflower or broccoli
