Trout Crusted With Pistachios

While at Costco a week or so ago, I bought a bag of shelled pistachios as I was making a few desserts that required them, then I thought why not use the trout fillets we have on hand as well. We did and they were delicious.

  • 6 trout fillets, skin removed, bones as well
  • 3 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup coarsely ground pistachios (toasted)
  • green beans, steamed
  • white rice
  • lime wedges

Place the trout on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush the mustard over the tops and sprinkle liberally with the nuts, pressing to make sure they adhere.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and bake for about 13-14 minutes or until the fillets flake easily.

Place a fillet on each plate, add white rice, a lime wedge and, of course,  beautiful steamed green beans, sprinkled with some pistachios.

Serve with warm dinner rolls and a glass of chilled white wine. Yippee!
