Pistachios make a perfect crust for this simple oven baked fish! In fact my Pistachio Crusted Salmon recipe might just end up being your new favorite way to cook fish.
Hi friends! Oh happy Tuesday!
I’ve got something yummy for you guys today. It involves a unique twist on salmon… something I hope is new to you!
Pistachio Crusted Salmon!
I love pistachios! They have such a yummy and unique taste. I even read they are the nut you will hear more about in 2015.
Move over almond, the pistachio is in town!
I got these pistachio “nut meats” from Trader Joes. To make the Pistachio Crusted Salmon, I start by smashing my nuts into slightly smaller pieces. You don’t want to obliterate them in a processor, just break them down a little.
Bad day at work? Come home and smash these nuts! 🙂
You prepare the salmon by squeezing 1/2 lemon for every two pieces of fish and seasoning with salt and pepper on both sides.
You then put about a teaspoon of yummy grainy mustard on top. You want a thin and even layer because the nut mixture is going to stick to this.
You then make a mixtures of panko, Parmesan and a healthy serving of pistachios!
You turn your piece of salmon flesh side down into the pistachios and press well.
Flip the fish back over and look what you have…
Pistachio crusted salmon perfection!
Serve with a simple side and you have a meal quick enough for a weeknight, but fancy enough for a dinner party!
