    Add 3 rolls to each wooden skewer 7. Place the skewers on a tray lined with parchment paper, drizzle with olive oil and cook in a ventilated oven preheated to 390°F for 25 minutes. Once cooked, remove your pistachio roll skewers from the oven and serve hot and melted 9!


    Pistachio roll skewers can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of days. You can assemble the skewers uncooked a couple of days or hours in advance and store them in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook.


    For this recipe it is best to use pistachio flour rather than finely chopped pistachios, as the finer consistency means it adheres better to the meat. The veal slices must be very thin: flatten them with a meat mallet if necessary.
