I was looking for something to do with my wild-caught salmon fillets besides just grill or broil them since I'm watching my weight. I love pecan crusted salmon, but all of the recipes that I found had way more calories and carbs than I wanted. I decided to experiment and I ended up with this delicious recipe that only has 391 calories and 6 net carbs per serving, according to the nutrition calculator that I used. This is so good, you'll think you're cheating, but you're not!
