  • Place salmon on a 12- by 15-inch baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn fish over. Spoon pecan mixture evenly over fish and broil again, checking frequently to be sure nuts do not scorch, until fish is opaque but still moist- looking in the center of the thickest part (cut to test), 1 to 2 minutes longer.

  • With a wide spatula, transfer fish to serving plate.
