Pistachio Crusted Salmon Filets……

…..isn’t as crazy as it sounds. It’s quick and easy and real good.

About fifteen years ago I first ran into it in a restaurant in Manasquan on the Jersey Shore as “Pistachio Crusted Filet of Flounder”.

I saw it on the menu and said “What!”

Our friends, Susan and David, told me that it was great and that I should try it.

So I did and it WAS great!

Here it is done with Salmon.

It’s simple to make and you will enjoy it. It’s definitely easy enough for a busy weeknight.

It also works real good with Tuna steaks, Cod filets or Tilapia,

Get the oven going sat 450°F/232°C.

Now, you could put the pistachios in the food processor or spare yourself the cleanup and just pound them a little bit in a zip loc bag. Use the flat side of a meat mallet or the bottom of a sauce pan.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil. Or, use a non stick baking sheet like you see here.

Pat the salmon filets dry and lay them skin side down in the pan. If your filets have been skinned just look for the flatter side that has a gray stripe running across it and lay out the filets with that side down.

Spread the mayonnaise only on the top side.

Generously sprinkle the crushed pistachios all over the mayonnaise and gently pat them down with a spatula or the flat side of a knife.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the salmon will easily flake when tested with a table fork. Then serve up your Pistachio Crusted Salmon Filets.

I multi-tasked while the salmon was in the oven and did some “baked” potatoes in the microwave and topped them with a pat of butter and a pinch of dried parsley flakes. And, threw together a salad. 

The whole meal took twenty minutes. Chardonnay goes great with salmon and that’s what we scarfed down, er,,sipped, with our Pistachio Crusted Salmon Filets.

Salmon Filets with Lime Juice and Cilantro – 20 minutes – Quick and Easy – Gluten Free

http://amzn.to/2mP10YB

Salmon Filets with Lime Juice and Cilantro…

……is quick and easy and a real tasty way to put together a real good weeknight  supper.

When we were living in Mexico we learned to use limes instead of lemons and cilantro instead of parsley. Mostly because lemons and parsley were pretty damn hard to find and limes and cilantro were everywhere.

There was always lots of fresh fish available and this was our favorite way to throw it together. 

it’s easy to do and you will like it.

Rinse off and pat dry the cilantro and coarsely chop it up. Put it in a small bowl and squeeze in the lime juice.

That juice squeezer that you see in the pic, we brought back with us from Mexico. You can get them here in the states and for limes especially they work real well.

Melt the butter in the microwave and add it to the cilantro.

salmon filets-2-poppopcooks.com-salmon-salmon recipes-best salmon recipe-pan fried salmon-recipes for salmon

Put a skillet on the stove at medium high and eyeball enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom.

Rinse off the salmon filets and pat them dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Some optional additional herbs for the sprinkling are dried dill weed, dried basil, lemon pepper, garlic powder and on and on.

But just salt and pepper work just fine.

salmon filets-3-poppopcooks.com-salmon-salmon recipes-best salmon recipe-pan fried salmon-recipes for salmon

If your salmon filets still have the skin on them put them in the skillet with the skin side up. If they have been skinned put them in with the flatter side, that has a gray stripe, facing up.

 salmon filets-4-poppopcooks.com-salmon-salmon recipes-best salmon recipe-pan fried salmon-recipes for salmon

Just about 2-3 minutes a side depending on how thick your Salmon Filets are.

When you can see the white liquid trying to escape from the middle of the  salmon filets  – it means that they are ready.

salmon filets-8--poppopcooks.com-salmon-salmon recipes-best salmon recipe-pan fried salmon-recipes for salmon

Spoon the cilantro mixture on the filets while they are still in the skillet then put them on your serving dish. Then spoon the liquid from the pan on top.

This Salmon Filets dish is a real good one. Enjoy it!!

Lemon Butter Salmon Sautéed with Scallions

Lemon Butter Salmon-11-poppopcooks.com

Lemon Butter Salmon Sautéed with Scallions and garlic and spinach and it turned out great and including the parsnips all done in under 25 minutes. How was that for bad grammar?

Our veggie du jour is parsnips. You could substitute carrots for the parsnips. We’re not going to boil or bake them. In the pursuit of quick and easy we will let the the microwave work it’s magic. Peel and cut them into small french fry shaped pieces getting them all just about the same size.

Lemon Butter Salmon-poppopcooks.com

Put them in a microwave safe bowl and into the microwave set for four minutes. When the microwave beeps take them out and add a pad or two of butter, salt, pepper and some dried basil. Set it aside to be warmed up when the salmon is ready to be served.

Lemon Butter Salmon-4-poppopcooks.com

Cut the fuzzy ends off the scallions – aka green onions – and peel off that extra layer.

Lemon Butter Salmon-3-poppopcooks.com

Cut them into about 3/8″ pieces. Chop up the garlic. Coarsely chop up the spinach.

Lemon Butter Salmon-5-poppopcooks.com

Put a skillet on at medium high and add the butter then the scallions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Lemon Butter Salmon-6-poppopcooks.com

Give them just a couple of minutes until they start to get brown.

Lemon Butter Salmon-7-poppopcooks.com

Push the scallions off to the sides of the pan and put the salmon filets in with the skin side up. If your filets have been skinned look for the flat side with the gray stripe across it and that will be the side to have on top.

Lemon Butter Salmon-9-poppopcooks.com

When you can see a little bit of white appearing on the side of the filet it is time to turn them over. Usually about 2-3 minutes.

Lemon Butter Salmon-10-poppopcooks.com

Add the garlic, spinach and squeeze in the lemon juice then toss in the lemon rind. Cook the salmon for just a minute or two. Put the parsnips back in the micro wave for just 30 seconds for a reheat.

Lemon Butter Salmon-11-poppopcooks.com

Then go ahead and enjoy your Lemon Butter Salmon. Don’t forget the parsnips!
