Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets about 4 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt can substitute with mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 10 grams about 4 teaspoons finely chopped pecans
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon dried garlic powder

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack over top. Spray rack with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup and yogurt until smooth. Spread about 2 teaspoons of the syrup mixture on top of each salmon fillet.
  • Mix remaining ingredients in a separate small bowl. Gently press approximately 1 tablespoon of the breadcrumb mixture onto the top of each fillet.
  • Lightly spray each piece of fish with cooking spray or canola oil (this will help it turn crispy and brown).
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork and topping is browned and crispy.
