    I don't even like salmon but I thought I would give this a try since my husband loves salmon. Well to my surprise I loved this!!! It was my first time cooking fish and this was so easy to make! It also tasted really great! - 11/3/08

    This is FANTASTIC!!!!!! It was rich tasting and filling in a way that fish sometimes isn't. Even my fish-phobic fiance (try saying that three times fast) loved it! We served it with broccoli and orange wedges in FF creme fraiche. YUM!!!!! - 10/20/08

  • I used this recipe on some inexpensive Hake fish (also lower in calories/per oz) and it turned out pretty good. I am looking forward to trying it on salmon. I didn't have any on-hand when I came across this recipe. - 10/25/12

  • I wanted a simple crusted salmon recipe and this was it! Definitely a keeper. Although not quite cooked through I placed the salmon in the oven for an additional 20 min at 350. DH was going to have leftovers until he saw me making this ... lol. - 12/2/10

  • This was very nice- and simple to make. If you don't have a food processor, you can put the nuts on a flat tray with a lip and hit then with a heavy mug until crushed. - 11/17/09

  • I managed to blacken it a little, but oddly enough it didn't taste burnt. It was very good! :D - 6/29/09

  • W/ the ingredients together, I wasn't really sure how it would turn out. I used my hand-crank nut chopper, and I don't think I got the pistachios fine enough. Plenty stuck, & we did like the way the nuts tasted darkened. Those that fell off went well with the couscous, spinach, and raisin side. - 1/10/09
