How To Make Pistachio Crusted Salmon

Ingredients needed

  • Salmon
  • Pistachios
  • Plain panko breadcrumbs
  • Butter
  • Salt & pepper
  • Mayo or mustard (see tips below)

Quick tips for the best recipe

  • You’ll need to use something to make the crust stick during baking. Dijon mustard or mayonnaise is perfect for this. Oil or butter isn’t thick enough to hold the crust in place. Whichever you decided to use you will not taste it in the end.
  • You can bake this recipe all the way through. But, you’ll need to bake the salmon about 10 minutes before adding the crust on because salmon typically takes 15-20 minutes in the oven depending on size.

Making the pistachio crusted salmon recipe

  1. First, chop up the pistachios then mix together the other ingredients for the crust. Set to the side. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Now, season the salmon with salt and pepper. In a frying pan, add a little oil and on medium high heat sear both sides of the salmon. You only want to give it some color because it’ll finish cooking in the oven.
  3. Remove the seared salmon and place on a sheet pan. Brush mayo or mustard across the tops then carefully press the crust on the tops.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on it to avoid burning the pistachios.
  5. Once finished cooking allow to cool a bit but not too long since seafood cools really fast. Enjoy.
