Cod in pistachio crust

Ohoh, summer has really come here, I’m so lazy with writing new posts😀 Not that I don’t cook, but I just don’t feel like writing somehow…. at all…. Lately I have lots of writing to do at work and in the evenings I just can’t put myself to write several simple sentences. I  need holidays. Fortunately, they are nearly here! We’re flying on Saturday to Poland for whole two weeks🙂 Can’t wait, I also hope we will make a day trip to Slovakia and be sure I’ll post lots of pictures from our beautiful Tatra mountains🙂. However, now time for a copy-cat recipe😉 I’ve found it on Trissalicious blog, it’s fast and gives a really nice outcome. I’ve just noticed I’ve never posted any fish recipe here before. And again it’s the same story we eat them but I don’t write about them, or no wait… it’s rather that I don’t find fish photogenic. Or …. ok, well ok I’ll just admit it… I can’t make nice fish pics… there I said it…. snif…. I kept to recipe pretty much, apart from folding the fish and adding still a spoon of Parmesan to the crust as well as omitting egg white (ups … I forgot about it). Below is an original recipe, enjoy🙂

INGREDIENTS:

2 cod fillets, skinned and deboned

35 grams butter

75 grams pistachios

2 cloves garlic, crushed

3 springs thyme

salt and pepper to taste

1 egg white

4 slices lemon

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c
  2. Season the fillets with salt and pepper
  3. In a food processor combine the pistachios, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper (Parmesan optionally)
  4. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the pistachio mixture. Cook for around 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes. Add the egg white and mix well (not necessary)
  6. Bend fillets in half, put 2 slices of lemon inside. Coat the fillets in the pistachio mixture
  7. Place the coated fillets in an ovenproof dish
  8. Bake the fillets for around 10 to 12 minutes until cooked through.
