Preparation

1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine all ingredients in small saucepan and place over medium heat.
2 Simmer four minutes then drain.
3 Place pecans on a wire rack placed over a cookie sheet and roast for about 10 minutes, until toasted.

salmon

1 May substitute Florida Orange Juice from Concentrate.
2 Combine chili powder, coriander, pepper and orange juice in saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer then set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Stir-in chopped cilantro. Place salmon fillets in a 9×13-inch casserole dish and pour marinade over fillets. Cover and refrigerate for one hour, then turn fillets over and marinate one hour more. Remove fillets and strain marinade through a fine mesh strainer into small saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
3 To cook salmon: Lightly coat the bottoms of two large non-stick skillets with oil and place them over medium-high heat until hot. Season salmon fillets lightly with salt and pepper and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly seared. Turn fillets over and cook 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove from the fire and allow fillets to rest in hot pans.

Toss well and set aside. Divide onto the center of six plates. Rest a salmon fillet to the side of each salad and drizzle remaining reduced marinade over each fillet.
