Pistachio Crusted Salmon

When it comes to fish, I always appreciate nut-crusted renditions! The main reason is because I'm obsessed with food textures and really like combining anything soft with anything crunchy. Who wants to eat a plate or bowl of just mush anyway?

Take a piece of salmon, add some crushed nuts, throw it in the oven, set it and forget it! In terms of which nuts, you can use almost any. My personal favorites are pistachio or macadamia. They are more expensive but I love their extra buttery taste! Yum...
