pitachio cursted salmon


  • 1 (1-pound) wild king salmon fillet, skin on and pin bones removed
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard (I actually used the whole grain variety)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives or scallions
  • ½ cup shelled salted and dry roasted pistachios, crushed



Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Pat the fish dry with a paper towel and divide the fillet into three uniform portions.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on the skin, and lay it skin-side down on the parchment-lined baking tray.

Combine the mustard and chives in a small bowl and spread one-third of the mixture evenly on each piece of fish.

Next, sprinkle the crushed nuts on top of the mustardy salmon and pat them down gently to make sure they stick.

Place the tray in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through to your desired doneness

Take the salmon out of the oven and let the fillets rest for a few minutes.

Serves with veg of your choice and enjoy!
