Pistachio Crusted Salmon

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Suzy_Q

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!

I didn't have seafood magic seasoning blend so I made this recipe#368939. 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. Thanks Suzy :) Made for PAC Spring 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
