Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly browned. Stir 2 or 3 times to toast uniformly.
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine honey with half of the butter. Stir in the toasted pecans and cook for 8 to 10 minutes to infuse the flavours. Remove from heat and keep warm.
Melt remaining butter with oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Arrange fillets in frying pan and cook until firm to the touch, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Transfer to serving plate and spoon glaze over top.
