Salmon with Pine Nuts

I have been craving a lot of fish lately.  So when David and I where in Washington DC, I had this wonderful salmon dish with pine nuts.  I thought I would try to mimic the recipe.  I came close.

Pan roast the pine nuts until golden. The use a rolling pin or chop as you like to crumble the pine nuts.I added in some fresh parsley, and did a coarse chop.I had purchased this beautiful salmon filet.  I cut it into 4 equal pieces for cooking (and I left the skin on—love the skin especially when crispy).Take the pine nut mixture and coat the top of the fish with it.  Cook it with the pine nut side down first, cooking it 4-5 minutes.Flip them, and cook until the skin is crispy.  It was good, nutty, and succulent.  I should have served the skin side up, but didn’t so it didn’t stay crispy.  It was still very good.  I did serve this with the cherry sauce.

Candied Pecans

My version of candied pecans…

Sort pecan halves.
Measure out 1 cup granulated sugar.  I also use cinnamon, allspice and a pinch of salt.
Whisk two egg whites and one Tablespoon of cold water until frothy.
Pour in sugar, spices and salt into egg mixture.
Add pecans, and stir until pecans are coated in mixture.
Spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Try to spread out in one even layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven, and let cool.  Once they are cooled, break apart, eat and enjoy!
 Lots of yummy sugar bits.
Caution:  these are very addictive!
I normally give these away as gifts during Christmas.  
I have named them:  Jerry Ann’s Nuts
Yes, it can be taken that way.
