Pumpkin Pecan Salmon

This recipe is very close to my heart. It is the first dish that I cooked for my husband when we were dating. I joke that it's the reason he fell in love with me. All kidding aside, Pumpkin Pecan Salmon is a simple and delicious recipe that's become part of my annual Fall rotation. I hope that you will love it just the same. And, who knows? You might end up cooking it for your future husband! 


15oz can of canned pumpkin
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1.5 pounds of salmon, pin bones removed, skin-on
1 cup of pecan halves 
1 tablespoon of brown sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

Combine the pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Lightly grease a baking pan with olive oil or coconut oil. Generously cover the salmon fillets with the pumpkin mixture. Add the pecan halves to the top of the fillets. Lightly sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on the fillets. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow the fillets to cool for a few minutes before plating. Garnish the plate with pecan halves and brown sugar.
