I have been craving a lot of fish lately. So when David and I where in Washington DC, I had this wonderful salmon dish with pine nuts. I thought I would try to mimic the recipe. I came close.
Pan roast the pine nuts until golden. The use a rolling pin or chop as you like to crumble the pine nuts.I added in some fresh parsley, and did a coarse chop.I had purchased this beautiful salmon filet. I cut it into 4 equal pieces for cooking (and I left the skin on—love the skin especially when crispy).Take the pine nut mixture and coat the top of the fish with it. Cook it with the pine nut side down first, cooking it 4-5 minutes.Flip them, and cook until the skin is crispy. It was good, nutty, and succulent. I should have served the skin side up, but didn’t so it didn’t stay crispy. It was still very good. I did serve this with the cherry sauce.
