What fish to use
This is a very flexible recipe in that you can use different types of fish. It can be cod or halibut or salmon or another fish that you can fillet easily. I don’t recommend fish with lots of bones in it such as mackerel.
Everyone in my house loves salmon so that’s the fish I used in my pistachio crusted fish recipe. This recipe has only 4 ingredients (plus some salt and pepper to taste) so it’s simple and comes together very quickly. It’s also gluten free.
How to make pistachio crusted fish
This crusted fish recipe does require a bit of time for marinating (at least 30 minutes) but the marinade is very uncomplicated. Just season the fish and drizzle with lime. So it’s quick and easy to do.
Whilst the fish is marinating in the lime juice combine the pistachios with the melted butter. Then simply spread the mixture over the fish and bake! Your delicious, zesty pistachio crusted salmon with a crunch will be ready in less than 20 minutes.

I often sprinkle fish with either lime or lemon juice (and leave to marinate for a while) before popping it in the oven. The results are always fantastic. The fish is gorgeously succulent and tastes delicious.
This crusted salmon with nuts produces not only delicious, succulent fish but comes with a bit of added crunch. The roasted nutty topping complements the fish extremely well. And it looks so pretty too:)
As with any fish recipe, it is important not to overcook it as it might come out of the oven a little dry. Times of cooking may vary depending on the thickness of your fish.
