Pistachio nut-crusted salmon on braai

Pistachio nut-crusted salmon cooked on a braai (South African barbecue) sounds delicious! Here’s a simple recipe to help you prepare this flavorful dish:

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Fresh herbs for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat your braai (barbecue) to medium-high heat.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the pistachio nuts until they are finely chopped. Be careful not to over-process, as you want a textured crust.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the chopped pistachios, olive oil, Dijon mustard, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Mix well to form a paste-like consistency.
  4. Pat the salmon fillets dry with a paper towel and place them skin-side down on a clean plate or cutting board.
  5. Spread the pistachio mixture evenly on the flesh side of each salmon fillet, pressing gently to adhere the crust.
  6. Place the salmon fillets, skin-side down, on the preheated braai grill. Close the lid and cook for about 4-6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. The crust should be golden brown, and the salmon should be opaque and flake easily with a fork.
  7. Carefully remove the salmon fillets from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
  8. Serve the pistachio nut-crusted salmon hot, accompanied by lemon wedges for squeezing over the fish. It pairs well with a side of grilled vegetables or a fresh salad.
