Spiced Maple Pecan Salmon on plateThe autumn season brings us pumpkin spice flavours in our coffees and our sweets, but what about in our savoury foods? This wonderful salmon dish doesn't just have a maple glaze and toasted pecan pieces, it incorporates pumpkin spice seasonings to create the most beautiful fall flavours. This is by far one of my favourite fish recipes of all time. I really hope you give it a try!


It's great to bake this salmon over a bed of vegetables. Choose veggies that will cook up in the same amount of time that the fish does, around 15 minutes. Asparagus was my choice here.


  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tsp rosemary
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • dash nutmeg
  • dash allspice
  • dash cloves
  • 1 ½ pound fresh salmon fillet
  • 1 orange, sliced
