Another lovely way to cook a lovely fish! You can use different nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds etc. You may also use a different fish such as Chilean Sea Bass, Trout etc. Seafood Magic is a seasoning by Chef Paul Prudhomme. Get his seasonings if you can find them - they are to die for! You may sub Old Bay instead but it wont have the same flavor, though still fantastic!

Directions

  1. Generously sprinkle both sides of salmon with Seafood Magic (about 2-3 teaspoons total).
  2. Put pistachios and olive oil in a food processor and grind.
  3. Evenly distribute the crushed nuts on both sides of the salmon, pressing in with your fingers.
  4. Melt the butter in a large skillet and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon.
  5. Add salmon steaks to the skillet over medium heat, cooking each side for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Turn off heat and keep covered in the skillet until ready to serve.
  7. Season the salmon steaks with the juice of the other 1/2 of lemon.

I didn't have seafood magic seasoning blend so I made this Seafood Seasoning Mix. It turned out great. I used trout fillets. It's not really easy to flip the trouts without losing the pistachios. Since the fillets had skin, I put the pistachios on only the side without skin. It's delicious and special.
