Salmon with Cranberry Pistachio Sauce

Prep Time: 20 minutes, Cook Time: 30 minutes, Total Time: 50 minutes, Servings: 2 people

Ingredients:

Salmon

-2-3 ounce salmon filets

-1 teaspoon honey

-1 teaspoon Dijon

-1/2 cup pistachios

-1/4 teaspoon olive oil

-sea salt and black pepper to taste

-1 cup of Cranberry Orange Preserves

Celeriac Mash

-1 large celeriac (celery root)

-1/2 tablespoon butter

-1/4 cup milk (or almond milk or choice)

-sea salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

Salmon

1. Pre-heat oven to 425 F.

2. Add 1/4 cup of pistachios to a blender, and blend until ground into a fine flour.  A coarser grind will result in a less crunchy topping and a finer grind will bake up crisper.

3. Mix pistachio flour with sea salt and pepper, to taste, and then mix in ½ teaspoon olive oil.

4. In a small dish, mix the honey and Dijon.

5. In a baking dish, brush the honey-Dijon mixture on the salmon.  Dip the top of each salmon fillet in the pistachio mixture and coat well.

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until salmon, is cooked through.

7. Increase oven temperature to low broil, and place salmon near the broiler.  Continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork, watching carefully to keep nuts from burning.

8. Heat the Cranberry Orange Preserves and stir in 1/4 cup of pistachios to the sauce.

9. Spoon over the salmon

Celeriac Mash

1. Peel and chop the celeriac into large chunks.

2. Add the celeriac to a pot with boiling water, and boil for 12-15 minutes, until the chunks are soft all the way through. It will not fall apart as easily as potatoes.

3. Drain, and add the cooked celeriac to a food processor bowl. Add butter, milk, salt, and pepper. Process for 3-4 minutes. It will take longer for the celeriac to form a mash than potatoes, but will eventually smooth out. Celeriac doesn't get as smooth as potatoes, but will be thick and creamy.
