Hemp Crusted Salmon

hemp crusted salmon from sizzlefish | almost getting it together

We are currently in the process of eating through our pantry and freezer at the Pisone household… except I happen to be eating every meal out as of late. Whoops. After lamenting about how I couldn’t find sablefish in Pittsburgh, Sizzlefish sent me a lovely and unexpected assortment of fish – two types of salmon, scallops, haddock and… sablefish! (Which I still haven’t cooked… this coming week for sure!)

These photos were taken at night… womp womp.

Pro tip: If you want to crust anything, use mustard. It gives it great flavor and helps whatever it is stick on. I’m not just saying that because I unabashedly love mustard.

Joe agreed this was awesome salmon. I don’t think he’d ever had a hemp seed before in his life. He did hold a halogen lamp over these photos to try and take them, but it was still insanely hard. Is it summer yet? Is the sun up any longer on the West Coast? Can I go there?

Are you good about eating the things in your fridge or pantry? What else should I make with all of the pantry staples I have (i.e. everything)? Do you think I’m being cryptic?

Rats, you have told them the secret to crusting things! The Mustard! Mustard is the bomb.com when it comes to that.

Mustard is the bomb.com when it comes to, um, everything. Except in dealing with cramps according to this month’s issue of Runner’s World!

I try my best to eat everything in the pantry and fridge, indeed! I buy fresh meats and herbs so if I don’t they’ll go badly.

I’ve never had or heard of hemp seed. I love salmon though. I’m not a big cook, so I never thought of using mustard as crust, but man, I really want to try this recipe now! It looks pretty simple.
