Gorgonzola and Pecan Crusted Salmon

It was a bit late when I got home last night after one of my cooking class, but since I had not eaten I was starving. I did not really have time to think about what I really wanted to eat.. I just used what I had on hand: salmon, gorgonzola and pecan.

For the cooking class we had made gorgonzola, pecan and apricot tartlets and this made me think that that mixture would probably good as the topping of my salmon.

Ingredients for 3 people: 1 small filet of salmon, 1/3 cup of gorgonzola, 1/3 cup of pecan, 1 tbsp of maple, salt and pepper.

In small chopper, chop the nuts very tiny and set aside. Grind the gorgonzola cheese on a cheese grater. Mix the two ingredients and add 1 tbsp of maple ( it takes some of the bitterness and the bite out of the cheese), and mix well.

Place the salmon on a silpat and coat the salmon with that gorgonzola mixture. Cook in the oven at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Et voila! Serve with fresh grillled vegetables.

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
