Sheet Pan Pecan-Crusted Salmon with Brussels Sprouts

Submitted by: The American Pecan Council

Sheet pan dinners make for easy weeknight meal-prep and clean-up. Prepare simple pecan-crusted salmon fillets and Brussels sprouts and place on a single baking sheet for a full meal that’s prepped and cooked in just over 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 4 4-to 6-ounce salmon fillets, skins removed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or pecan oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup raw pecan pieces
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup raw pecan halves
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and lightly grease a large baking sheet pan. Place chopped pecans in a wide, shallow dish.
  2. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper and brush top sides with about 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Press salmon fillets top-side-down into the finely chopped pecans to coat. Arrange salmon fillets in the center of prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, remaining olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, pecans halves, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine, then transfer to the sheet pan in a single layer, not touching the salmon.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes until Brussels sprouts are fork-tender and salmon is cooked through.
  5. While salmon is baking: in a medium sauce pan bring balsamic vinegar to a boil, continue to boil, stirring throughout, for about 10 minutes until liquid has reduced by half. Remove from heat, stir in honey, and allow to cool until ready to serve. Drizzle over salmon and Brussels sprouts just before serving.
