Pistachio Crusted Salmon

This is close to the Food Network- Robert Irvine's recipe. I actually used Whole Food's pistachio/panko topping (instead of adding the pistachios and panko seperately) and cut the canola oil down to 2 tbsp instead of 4. Irvine's recipe was the closest I found to using the WF topping. I like garlic on salmon, so I optionally added the garlic powder mixed into the topping (or can add fresh crushed or sauteed garlic). I used 36 oz of Wild Alaskan Salmon Fillets to calculate the recipe nutrition info. The recipe serves approximately 9- based on a 4 oz serving of salmon. A bit high in the fat content- but wild salmon contains the good fats. If you like the flavor- try substituting extra virgin olive oil for the canola oil.

The crust with 36 oz.. of fish is pretty thick- which we like. But if you are looking to cut more calories/fat you can decrease the amount of panko bread crumbs and pistachios and have a bit less of a crust topping.

100% White Whole Wheat Bread - Home Made (Bread Machine)

For 1-1.2 lb. Bread Machines. From the razzledazzlerecipe.com site. I used King Arthur's Organic White Whole Wheat Bread. I like whole wheat and other whole grains but I am using this and have found that our kids prefer the milder taste. With the first loaf I used rapid rise yeast (Hodgson Mill brand) and it worked great; except the loaf rose so much that the top stuck slightly to the lid of my bread maker! I found instant yeast as the recipe suggests and will use that for future loaves. I used honey and ground flax seeds (unground= nutrition cannot be absorbed). The cook time depends on how long it takes your bread machine to knead, rise, and bake the loaf. My machine takes approx. 2 hrs 20 minutes. Makes about 20 servings of regular medium to thin sized slices or thick half-slices.
