    Ingredients:
    1/3 cup pistachio nuts, finely chopped

Directions

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 475F.

Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray

Mix together chopped pistachios and bread crumbs in shallow bowl.

(make bread crumbs by placing 2 slices of dry day old bread into a brown paper bag for a few days... Place bag on counter top and roll with a rolling pin to crush bread.)

In a separate bowl, stir together Dijon mustard, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper until smooth.

Place filets on the prepared baking sheet.

Brush mustard mixture on to tops of fish.

Then evenly sprinkle with nut-bread crumb mixture. Brush any loose crumbs toward the filets to prevent burning.

Place into pre-heated oven . Turn the oven down to 375F. Bake until the fish is done, about 15 minutes.
