After a recent trip overseas, my husband brought me back an incredible seasoning mixture from a local market in Israel. The mixture contained pistachios, dried onion, and a mouthwatering spice blend.

I used it one night, in an oven roasted salmon recipe, and the result was so incredible, I couldn’t wait to share it!

Since most of us don’t have the option to fly to Israel to pick up a bag of this seasoning mixture, I did my best to replicate it. You will not be disappointed! It’s fantastic.

And though it’s my favorite on salmon and other fish, you can find lots of fantastic uses for it. So, back to this Weight Watcher salmon recipe…it was a huge hit, and I will be definitely be making this regularly. Enjoy!

      I wish I knew :(. It was from a market, and was bagged with no listing of ingredients. I just tried to emulate based on taste.
