mod fam foodLove this Joseph Joseph pestle & mortar from John Lewis. Also am a complete convert to this easy to use grater – similar here.

Here’s what to do…

  1. Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray/dish.
  2. Mix the bread crumbs, pesto, pistachio nuts and a touch of lemon zest together in a bowl and season.
  3. Divide the mixture between the 4 fillets and spread over the top of each piece of salmon.
  4. Drizzle with a little of olive oil and bake in the oven at 180 for about 20 minutes.

Tips…

Substitute the green pesto with red, or try an olive paste as an alternative.

You can substitute the pistachios for nuts of your choice, or sprinkle with a seed mixture too.

The salmon is wonderful hot, or cold if you need to prepare ahead of time.
