Prep Time: 8 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
• 1/2 lb. wild Alaskan salmon fillet
• 2 tbsp unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
• 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
• 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
• 1 fresh lemon
• Olive oil
Rub salmon with a little olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Grill salmon over a medium hot fire or gas grill for approximately 3 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillet, for medium rare. Remove to a plate and cover with foil.
Melt butter in a small to medium-size skillet over medium heat and add pecans and Cajun seasoning. Cook for 3-5 minutes until pecans are golden brown, being careful not to burn them. Stir in fresh parsley and a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Divide salmon into 4 pieces and spoon pecan butter over each portion. Creamy grits and collard greens are a good accompaniment.
