Boy did I need this dish! After two days of trying to record my recipe video, alone, I had worked up an appetite worthy of eating this whole 1 1/2 pound fillet. Did I actually eat it all? Ha, I will never tell. That is a secret best kept between me and the big guy upstairs. But if you decide to, I won’t judge. It’s just that good.

I am learning so much as I take control of production for my site. I’ve been using a DSLR camera for the first time and those “bad boys” are tricky. I can tell that everyday my photography skills are improving. And I wouldn’t say I’ve mastered but I’ve pretty much found my way around photoshop, illustrator, final cut pro and next I am going to teach myself html coding. Sounds like fun, I know.

Below is my very first video project. I designed, developed, produced, directed, shot, and edited everything in this video. Is it a little blurry? Yes. Is the lighting a little funky? Mmm hmmm. Is the sound kind of pitchy? You betcha. Nevertheless, I still love what I created and can’t wait to do the next one. I hope you enjoy it too.

You learn a lot about yourself while recording your own video, for instance, all of the annoying things that you say but you had no idea that you said them. I apparently love to say “bad boy” whether it makes sense to or not. It’s quite embarrassing. No one, I repeat, no one should say it as many times as I did unless they are getting signed to a record deal, and I am not.

For the recipe, I used a food processor to break down the nuts first. I know not everyone has a food processor so don’t feel like its is a necessary tool. You will just need to use a little more elbow grease. When I didn’t have a food processor or a blender I would merely put my cashews in a ziplock bag and pounded them with a canned good until the nuts were roughly where I wanted them to be. Sometimes you just gotta get scrappy with what you got.

As you can see in the video the salmon is so easy to make.  I made a whole fillet but you can also use the recipe for individually cut pieces. If you do, I would recommend cutting down the cooking time by 3-4 minutes.

I used cashews to crust the salmon but you can use any type of nut that you want. As a matter of a fact, you can do this on any type of fish that you want. I have also tried it on trout and it worked out great.

I mentioned in the video that store bought pesto can be used for the recipe but if you want to take things up a notch feel free to use my recipe for homemade pesto sauce. It’s out of this world. Enjoy!
