Fast Meals: Pistachio Crusted Salmon

A new series Fast Meals. My family meal times have become sporadic. Making it harder to schedule a timed meal. In order to have a meal together as a family, I need to start the meal as they all step through the door. We all know how fast they want it. So I have created a Fast meal category. This one will have meals that take no more them 30 minutes. Hope it will help you in your Fast meal plans.

This is a fast and very easy recipe.

Pistachio Crusted Salmon

your will need.

4 salmon steaks (about4 to 6 oz each)
1 egg white beaten
1/2 cup Roasted and salted shelled pistachio ( ground them)
freshly ground three peppercorn mixed pepper.
Robust Olive oil.
Sheet pan
Parchment paper

  1. Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit
  2. Brush salmon steak with beaten egg white.
  3. Roll in ground pistachios
  4. Place onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Skin side down
  5. Sprinkle with a little olive oil and dust with a hit of pepper.

Roast in oven for 12-15 minutes depending on how you like your fish. 12 minutes will be medium rare and 15 more medium.
Once out of the oven let stand for about 2 minutes. It will continue to steam a little.

I serve it with Steamed Jasmin rice and Fresh green beans braised in ginger and garlic oil.

I will post a photo later, forgot to take one. however this will be on the menu for this week and I will remember to take one. will post the Green bean recipe later. Follow me on facebook or Twitter to stay up on the recipes.
