  • 16 ounces Salmon
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup Pistachios finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Lightly salt and pepper both sides of each salmon filet.
  • Add Dijon mustard to each filet and then press the chopped pistachios into the mustard.
  • Place filets on a greased baking sheet or in a greased dish and bake 10-15 minutes, until salmon is tender and flakes easily with a fork. (The general rule of thumb is 10 minutes of cook time per inch of thickness).
  • Enjoy!
