Serves 6

Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

By Camille Styles


6 pieces of wild salmon

1 cup of pistachio meats (Trader Joe's makes a great product so you can cut out shelling time)

One large orange, zested (or any other kind of citrus) 

1 teaspoon chopped fresh garlic cloves

Italian parsley (optional)

Salt and black pepper


  1. Crush the pistachios with a mortar and pestle (or less fancy in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin or wine bottle!).
  2. Add garlic, orange zest, salt and pepper and mix to combine.
  3. Place a thick layer of the pistachio mixture on salmon filets and bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
  4. Finish with a squeeze of fresh orange juice and chopped parsley.
