The Deen Bros. Lighter Oven-Roasted Pistachio-Crusted Salmon
172 Fewer Calories
22 g Less Fat
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
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.

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
