Pistachio-crusted salmon recipe Pistachio-crusted salmon recipe

I could eat salmon every day. It is really one of those foods I never tire out of. Where I come from, at the foot of the Alps, it’s not to easy it’s impossible to find fresh salmon, but we have a lot of salmon trouts. I have vague memories of when, as a kid, I would go with grandpa fishing in the river and he would catch always good stuff.

I don’t even remember where did I get the idea to pair salmon with pistachios, but since then it has been a hit in our family and, when we want something fancy, but do not have time/energy/will to cook for long, we make this pistachio-crusted salmon. It tastes best if left to season for at least a couple of hours, if not even overnight. Because the taste of this dish is so full, a simple salad, grated carrots or some oven vegetables will work perfectly with it!
