Mustard and Pistachio Crusted Salmon

Ingredients : Serves 4
4 Salmon fillets
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
6 drops liquid smoke
Salt & pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup shelled pistachios
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp melted butter

Grind the pistachios till they resemble the consistency of bread crumbs. In a small bowl, combine the ground pistachios, breadcrumbs, melted butter, salt and pepper.

Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease generously with some oil to prevent the salmon from sticking. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet. In another bowl, combine the mustard, liquid smoke, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture equally over each fillet. Sprinkle the pistachio and breadcrumb mixture on top, pressing down slightly so that it forms a crust on each fillet. Bake for about 20 minutes.

    I would have never thought of using pistachios to crust something, but a dessert, but I’ll try it! Looks yumm! 😀

    The salmon looks really beautiful. I love that you add a little bit of chili too. It would add a nice kick:)
