Ok start out with a fresh RF and cut some fillets.

Throw them in some milk & place them in the fridge. Then let's get busy with the pistachios, crunch them up but leave the coarse, add some spices. This time I used salt,paprika & white pepper.

Now take those milk soaked fillets and coat them. Get as much as you can on them cause it falls off easy the way I do it, but if you want it to stick better you can dredge them in flour and milk again to get a sticky coating for the pistachios but I just go pure seeds and fry carefully.

Chop em up, get your spices (salt,wht pepper,basil,oregano) start the saute with onions, then your harder veggies, and lastly the soft ones (like tomatoes) adding the spices at the last stage of cooking. Cooking spices too long kills their flavor & effect on the dish.

After you've got that done, set the pan aside, and let's get to the fish. By now the pistachio crust has attached to the meat and we're ready to fry. I usually cook fish fast on high heat but I've found this recipe is best at moderate heat to avoid scorching or burning the coating.

A little butter & olive oil in the pan, place it in carefully and let the coating toast medium slow.

Now with the help of a couple handy greek salads I whipped up earlier, let's put it all together. Warm up the veggies that we did, once hot spoon a little over the fish and around them. Present it all and OPAH!! You've got a meal from the Aegean.

*Like Italian families, greeks tend to eyeball our spices, smell, taste and go. That's why i left out measurements. If you like it spicier substitute cayenne or red pepper.

Good luck & I hope someone out there enjoys this recipe.
