The Deen Bros. Lighter Oven-Roasted Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

By Bobby and Jamie Deen

The Deen Bros. Lighter Oven-Roasted Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

172 Fewer Calories
22 g Less Fat

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons unsalted shelled pistachio nuts
1 tablespoon whole-wheat bread crumbs
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 (4-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Lemon wedges for serving

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a small rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine the pistachio nuts, bread crumbs, and oil in a food processor until coarsely ground. 

Pat the fillets dry with paper towels and sprinkle with the salt. Spread the mustard evenly on top of each fillet. Top the fillets evenly with the pistachio mixture pressing to form an even layer.  Transfer the fillets, crust-side up, to the baking sheet. Roast until the salmon is just opaque in the center, 8 – 10 minutes.  Serve with the lemon wedges.
