Almond Pecan Popcorn Crusted Salmon

4 four oz. salmon filets

½ canister The Popcorn Factory® Almond Pecan Clear Favorites (Item# S3551A)

1 clove garlic, finely minced

½ tsp. kosher salt

¼ tsp. black pepper, freshly ground

2 tbs. butter, melted

 

1)      Place half of the contents of The Popcorn Factory® Almond Pecan canister in a food processor and chop until finely ground (a flour like consistency).   

2)      Add garlic, kosher salt and black pepper to the food processor and blend until mixed well.

3)      Brush melted butter evenly on both sides of the filets, and then roll the filets in the popcorn flour, patting both sides so they are evenly coated.

4)      Heat a non-stick pan on medium-high heat and drizzle with olive oil.  Brown the coated filets on both sides, 5-6 minutes per side.

 

Serve warm.  Makes four servings.
