Salmon Crusted Pistachio Pesto

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Rita1652

You can make this with your favorite fish. Serve with pasta, potatoes or rice. I enjoy my sushi grade fish still cool inside. But by all means cook yours the full 10-15 minutes.

I have never seen Pistachio pesto sauce in the store, so I just made my regular basil pesto sauce and added pistachio nuts instead of pine nuts. Also added the lemon zest which I don't normally do and it made a wonderful tasting sauce. The salmon came out so moist and was super delicious. Thanks for a great easy recipe, Rita.
