I love serving a whole side of salmon for a dinner party. Even if you roast it simply with salt and pepper, it is guaranteed to make for an elegant presentation. This recipe is just barely more involved than a simple salt and pepper roast, and all that more special in effect.
Pistachio crusted salmon is a dish both easy and quick as a family dinner as it is for an elegant 8 person dinner gathering.
1.3 kg salmon fillet, pin bones removed
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, grated
2 Tbsp. honey
salt & pepper
3/4 cup shelled pistachios, chopped by hand or in food processor
Preheat oven to 375F.
Pat the salmon dry and place skin side down on a baking sheet.
Rub flesh with olive oil.
In a small bowl, combine minced garlic cloves and honey, spread over salmon.
Season with salt and pepper.
Press chopped pistachios onto salmon flesh.
Bake in oven until flesh flakes easily about 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
