Ingredients
  1. 2 Salmon fillets (choose wild salmon where possible)
  2. Generous knob of butter
For the crust
  1. 25g (1/4 cup) pecans, finely chopped
  2. 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  3. 1/2 tbsp cyder vinegar
  4. 1 tsp soy sauce
  5. 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  6. 1/4 tsp mild chilli powder
  7. Freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees celcius (425f)
  2. Mix all the crust ingredients together in a bowl
  3. Place the salmon fillets on a plate and carefully spoon the crust on top
  4. Melt the butter in an oven-proof grill pan (skillet) over a high heat. When the pan is really hot, carefully add the fish, skin side down, and cook for about 2 minutes without touching them so that the skin sears and becomes nice and crispy.
  5. Transfer the grill pan to your hot oven and continue to cook for 6-8 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  6. Serve immediately.
