Salmon Simplicity

Salmon Simplicity Recipe

The winner of 2015’s Annual Member Recipe Contest is courtesy of Ginger Long from Moline, Illinois.

We chose this recipe because the pecan butter is the perfect balance of sweet and savory for the salmon. It’s simple enough to make on a weeknight but also unique enough to impress guests or enjoy on a special occasion. You can freeze the butter for future use—and it works GREAT on halibut too.
