Salmon and Shrimp with Sweet & Spicy Pecan Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 oz. filet of salmon
  • ½ lb. of medium shrimp, fresh or thawed
  • 1 batch of Sweet and Spicy Pecan Sauce
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

1. Lightly season salmon filet with salt and pepper. Sautee in a skillet.

2. When salmon is nearly finished cooking, add shrimp. When first side of shrimp is pink, flip shrimp and add pecan sauce.

Tip and Alternatives:

Try making this with other fish, like lobster tail, monkfish or scallops.

This recipe is wonderful when made with butter, but you can also try olive, coconut, peanut or almond oil, if you can tolerate them.

Serve this as an appetizer by grilling large shrimp and dipping them into a bowl of pecan sauce.
