What's for Dinner? Wednesday: Nutty Salmon



It’s What’s for Dinner? Wednesday!  This Wednesday I’m sharing a recipe that I originally found in the May 2014 Fitness Magazine, but adapted slightly to my own liking. It's a recipe for Nutty SalmonIt received a rave review from my dad when I cooked it for my parents a few weeks back.  He’s pretty picky, so I’m pretty confident that you’ll agree that it’s good as well. But, don’t take his word for it! Try it out yourself.  It should cook up in about 10 minutes. The overall prep time is minimal so you can expect to have this dinner on the table in 20 minutes or less.  Here are the ingredients that you’ll need to get the job done and feed 4 people:

Ingredients:
Cooking spray
1/2 cup unsalted shelled pistachios, finely chopped
4 tsp Dijion mustard
2 tsp organe zest
1 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 6-oz salmon fillets

Find a side of veggies you love and a starch (we had green beans and potatoes) and get ready to cook up your fish.  

Step One: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees so it will be ready to cook your fish.  

Step Two: To make your salmon nutty, you’ll need something to help hold those green nuggets of goodness on the fish.  Grab a small bowl and mix together your Dijion mustard, orange zest, orange juice, salt, and pepper.  Then brush the mix onto your fish. Once your pistachios are chopped, press them onto the flesh of the fish and you’ll be ready to make that salmon totally nuts.

Step Three:  Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place your salmon on top (make sure it’s skin side down).  Cook your fish in your oven for 10 minutes or until it is cooked through.  

And that’s it! With the nuts and the salmon, this dish packs a great punch of omega-three fatty acids.

  4. This would be something I might try in a restaurant. I have no success with fish at home and Boo won't eat it. She eats calamari but she won't eat fish.
