This pumpkin seed crusted salmon is unique and delicious and it’s easy to make for dinner tonight!
With practice, I’m slowly getting better at cooking fish. I made this the other night and somehow magically managed to not turn it into a piece of rubber worthy of becoming a new car bumper.
The truth is, this recipe is really for the pumpkin seed “breading” more than the fish itself. It has a very light flavor so you could put this “breading” on just about any type of fish. Salmon, cod, halibut and trout are all good choices here.
It’s easy to put together and makes for a delicious clean eating meal!
