Maria Wyshak, the author, has brought us a wonderful selection that she has collected from her close friends who always shared their favorite and are credited for the recipe in the book.

2 T clarified butter or olive oil
1 cup chopped pecans
½ cup Italian bread crumbs

Mix nuts, bread crumbs, parsley and garlic to use as topping. Brush salmon with clarified butter then pile on pecan topping firmly. You can drizzle a little more butter over fish and then put in the refrigerator until ready to bake. Bake for l5 minutes at 400º. Serve with lemon wedges.
