This baking mix does not contain oats or oat fiber like many other recipes that I have come across.... This recipes is a more hearty "whole grain" taste, due to the flax being used.... I love that since before going low carb, I was into "whole grains"..... So it'll be fun to experiment with it!...

Spread the mayo mixture thickly, onto the salmon...then sprinkle on the pecan mixture over the mayo layer...

Bake in an 350 degree oven...around 40-45 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon, to tell if it is done, take a fork to a thick part and see if it is "flakey"... Turn oven to broil for another couple minutes to brown topping a bit, being careful not to burn....
