We all love an easy and flavorful dish for our holiday table. This light and bright Pistachio Crusted Salmon dish can be served warm or in room temperature.
2 ½ - 3 LB of salmon filet, skin removed
8 oz. toasted pistachios
1-cup panko bread crumbs
½ cup olive oil
2 Tbsps. honey
½ teaspoon salt
Fresh ground pepper
Place salmon dry, and place on a lightly oiled baking pan
In a food processor add the pistachio and panko, and pulse a few times until crumbled together. Add the oil, honey and salt and pulse a few times until fully combined to consistency of a chunky paste.
Preheat the oven to 350F. With a rubber spatula (or your hands) spread the pistachio paste over the salmon and coat evenly. Grind fresh pepper over the salmon. Bake for 25 minutes and place under the broiler for another 30-60 seconds to get a nice brown color. Remove from oven and serve warm or at room temperature.
Serves approximately 6-8
