Pistachios are one of Brune's favorite snacks and a mainstay ingredient in many of his culinary dishes because of their positive health benefits, such as lowering bad cholesterol levels and reducing the body's biological response to stress, according to recent research conducted by Penn State University.
Brune offers five healthy living tips to get a jump start on the upcoming spring/summer season:
Brune also recommends this simple recipe for pistachio-dusted salmon; the kind of healthy dish you might see at his regular healthy alternative cooking classes at Epicurean Professional Culinary Academy, in Beverly Hills.
Preheat your oven to about 375 degrees.
Cut salmon in half to make two 5-oz pieces. If your salmon has skin still attached, leave it on to lock in extra moisture. Gently drizzle olive oil on salmon, leaving an extremely light coat. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Pour honey over salmon halves and gently rub honey into meat using the back of a spoon. Spread chopped pistachios over flat surface of plate and place glazed portion of the fish onto the pistachios, generously covering surface.
Place pistachio-covered salmon into an oven-safe dish or on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Place in heated oven for 10 minutes or until done (shouldn't take more than 12 minutes max). To make sure the salmon is done, gently press surface of fish with a fork. There should be a firm bounce.
*To save time, buy the salmon scaled and deboned.
