  • Heat a small saucepan over low heat; add coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and caraway seeds. Cook and stir for 4 minutes or until fragrant and golden. (Do not allow the seeds to burn or they will taste bitter.) Remove from heat. Using a small food processor or a mortar and pestle, grind the seeds. Stir in oil, lemon peel, garlic, salt, cinnamon, and pepper.

  • Place pistachios in a small bowl; set aside. Rinse the fish; pat dry with paper towels. Spread one side of the fish fillets with the spice mixture. Bringing up two opposite ends, fold the fish into thirds. Dip the top and the sides of the fish bundles into the nuts to coat; place in the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with any remaining nuts.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the fish begins to flake when tested with a fork (145 degrees F). Serve with lemon wedges.

Tips

Tip: Save some time by asking your butcher or fishmonger to fillet the fish and remove the skin.
