Reviews for Pistachio-Crusted Fish Fillets
"Had a hard time tasting the pistachio flavor with this one. Going to keep searching for a good pistachio encrusted fish recipe."
"We have made it several times and recommended it to our friends who have thanked us. We have made it with tilapia when fresh orange roughy was available"
