Ingredients
  • 1 (2 to 3-pound) side salmon, skin on
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 4 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Arrange the side of salmon on an oven proof baking sheet, skin side down. Mix the lemon juice and mustard together in a small bowl and spread sparingly over the top of the salmon.

  • Coarsely grind the pistachios in a food processer. Add the panko bread crumbs, the oil and salt and pepper, to taste. (The bread crumbs should be slightly wet, as it helps the stick to the salmon.)

  • Sprinkle the pistachio mixture over the mustard to cover the salmon evenly.

  • Put in the preheated oven and bake until the salmon reaches the correct doneness, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven to a serving platter.

Cook's Note: Remember the fish needs to rest outside of the oven for at least 5 minutes. It will continue to cook, so remove the salmon from the oven with this in mind. Enjoy.
