BAKED SALMON WITH ORANGE
2-4 pounds fresh Atlantic salmon fillet
1 cup ground pistachios
1½ cups panko breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
Zest of 1 orange
Ground sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Blot salmon well with absorbent
paper. Place on an oiled baking pan, skin side down,
and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix pistachios, panko, thyme leaves and
orange zest. Add olive oil to bind; season to taste with salt
and pepper. Pat nut mixture on top of salmon fillet, covering entire surface. Bake fish for 15 minutes for medium or
20 minutes for medium well. Using a food thermometer,
make sure the fish reaches an internal temperature
of 145 F before removing from the oven.
Makes 6-10 servings.
