#2 Pesto-Nut Chicken

SERVING: 6

INGREDIENTS:
3/4 cup (195 g) pesto sauce
3/4 cup (75 g) pecans

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C or gas mark 4).
Spread the pecans in a shallow baking sheet, & put them in the oven, while it heats, for 6 minutes.
Place the chicken in a roasting pan & coat with the pesto.
When the oven timer beeps, pull out the pecans & turn the oven up to 375°F (190°C or gas mark 5).
Dump the pecans in a food processor. Pulse until they’re chopped to a medium consistency. Spread them on a rimmed plate.
Roll the pesto-coated chicken in the pecans, making a nice thick coating. Put the chicken back in the roasting pan, skin side up. Roast for 50 to 60 minutes or until the juices run clear.

 

#3 Mustard Salmon

SERVING: 4

INGREDIENTS:
Salt
Ground black pepper
1 salmon fillet (24 ounces, or 680 g), cut into 4 servings
2 tablespoons (30 g) spicy brown mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons butter or other fat
1/2 cup (50 g) Italian-Seasoned Pork Rind Crumbs (See page 37.)

Season the salmon lightly with salt and pepper and then spread each non-skin-side with 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard. Lay it skin-side down on the foil. Repeat with the other three fillets.
Bake the salmon for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, over medium-low heat, melt the butter in a skillet and add the crumbs. Cook the crumbs, stirring often, until they brown a little and become very crisp.
When the salmon is done, plate it, and spread 1/4 of the crumb mixture over each fillet. Serve the salmon immediately.
