What would pulverized pistachios enliven?

I have just under a cup of pulverized pistachios, left over from making goat-cheese-swaddled grapes. I’d love to try incorporating pistachio flavor into other savory dishes, but am at a loss, aside from possibly trying them as a stew thickener in place of hazelnuts. What do you think could use a hit of these gorgeous, nutty crumbs?
A crust for fish? A pistachio romesco sauce for grilled vegetables? A crunchy topping for stuffed broiled tomatoes?
Pistachio mint pesto is quite nice on fish and shrimp.
I also like to use pistachios in rice pilaf.
If you still have some goat cheese, stuffed some dried apricot with goat cheese pistachios.
Also if you have goat cheese - in a salad with the cheese and any number of fruits: apricot(dried or fresh if you can find them), grapes, mango, strawberries, etc
I"ve made this bread stuffing wtih both turkey and roast chicken to positive responses: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
