Cooking to Impress your Guests

We used the recipe fromMaria’s Kitchen”, a delightful little cook book full of great ideas that come from specially collected and cherished recipes, many handed down from mother to daughter.  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.

Baked Salmon with Pecan Topping

1 salmon filet

2 T clarified butter or olive oil

1 cup chopped pecans

½ cup Italian bread crumbs

¼ cup chopped parsley

1 clove crushed garlic


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.

We substituted the pecans with shaved almonds because that what a creative chef does, :)

After following the recipe by mixing breadcrumbs, parsley, nuts and garlic, we decided to add the color on top which was the orange pepper.  What a wonderful delight and my guests were blown away.
