Pine Nut Encrusted Salmon Steaks

Overview:

I had some extra pine nuts from a recent baba ganoush and came up with the following recipe. WOW – The flavors explode in your mouth.

Ingredients:

2 8 ounce Salmon steaks
1/3 cup pine nuts
1/4 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon course ground pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon basil
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Cooking spray
Lemon
Lime
Italian Flat Leaf Parsley

Directions:

Pine Nut Encrusted Salmon Steak

Pine Nut Encrusted Salmon Steak

Combine the pine nuts, salt, pepper, oregano and basil in a food processor. Chop until pine nuts are finely chopped. This mixture is very close to a pesto. The mixture should have a paste type texture. Use 2 tablespoons of mixture to coat each salmon steak.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium to large skillet heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the salmon steaks to the skillet pine nut side down. Cook approximately 3 minutes until pine nuts are browned.

Remove salmon steaks and place in an oven safe Pyrex or similar dish coated with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes until salmon flakes with a fork.

Plate and garnish with finely chopped parsley and a lemon and a lime wedge.
