Pistachio Panko Crusted Salmon
Pistachio Panko Crusted Salmon My husband tells me that this is one of his favorite dish’s. I’m grateful he tells me that often.
Recipe type: Main
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted shelled pistachio nuts
  • 1 tablespoon panko crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 8oz salmon fillets
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Combine the pistachio nuts, panko in a food processor until coarsely ground, or chop as fine as possible.(If you have a magic bullet, it works awesome for this step.)
  4. Pat the fillets dry with paper towels and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Spread the mustard evenly on top of each fillet. Top the fillets evenly with the pistachio mixture pressing to form an even layer. Drizzle the oil over the pistachio mixture and pat softly. Transfer the fillets, crust-side up, to the baking sheet. Roast until the salmon is just opaque in the center, 8 – 10 minutes.
