Last week a few people asked me for more simple weeknight dinner recipes, so I’m super excited to share this delicious pistachio crusted salmon! It’s SO flavorful, and seriously takes all of 5 minutes to throw together.
Serve it with a side of rice and your favorite roasted veggies, and you have dinner ready in under 30 minutes. Sounds delightful, doesn’t it?
Whenever people tell me they’re trying to eat healthier, I alway emphasize that incorporating more nutritious foods doesn’t need to complicated or require hours of prep. Sure, a little inspiration for what to make can be helpful, but hey- that’s what i’m here for 🙂
This meal seriously comes together so quickly, and pairs well with so many side dishes. I even left a few ideas for you below!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the salmon:
- salmon fillets, I like to keep the skin on
- dijon mustard
- olive oil
- crushed garlic
- lemon juice
- salt & pepper
We eat fish at least twice a week, so I like to try new things from time to time. I’ve had pistachio crusted salmon on my mind forever, and it’s definitely going to be on repeat over here.
The salmon is brushed in dijon mustard, lemon juice, a dash of honey and salt and pepper, then topped with crushed pistachios. It’s baked for 12-15 minutes, and comes out super soft and flakey!
Would this work with a large piece of salmon?
Definitely! My salmon was about 1.2 lbs, so be sure to double all of the ingredients if you’re using a large piece of salmon. This dish would be perfect to serve any guests!
I served this dish with a side of basmati rice and roasted broccoli, but it would pair will with just about anything, or even over a salad.
