Ingredients

  • ¼ cup pistachio nuts shelled
  • olive oil
  • 4 fillets trout
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon cut into thin slices

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • While the oven is heating up, place the whole but shelled pistachios in a plastic bag. Using a heavy sauce pot, rolling pin or meat flattener, smash the pistachios into tiny pieces.
    You’re looking for a bread crumb size. You could also use a food processor and pulse them into smaller pieces being careful not to process them into dust.
  • Transfer the pistachios to a round baking tin, pie dish or plate.
  • Rinse and pat dry the trout fillets with paper towels. Lightly oil the fillets on both sides, then season with salt and pepper.
  • Coat the flesh of the trout fillets with the pistachio pieces and transfer to a roasting pan, skin side down. Top the trout fillets with slices of lemon.
  • Place the fish into the oven and roast for 10 minutes or until the fish is done.
  • When the fish is done, remove it from the oven, plate your sides and transfer the fish fillets to the plate.
  • Serve and enjoy!
