Honey Pistachio Crusted Salmon

3 Apr


This is an extremely yummy way to cook salmon. The combination of the salty pistachios and sweet honey is just amazing and is extremely moreish! The pistachios also give a great texture and healthy crust to the salmon. It is really simple, only containing 5 ingredients. How handy is that!  My personal favorite is having this with hot floury boiled potatoes and loads of steamed veg. It is just so good. This would also be great if you had leftovers, which you probably won’t, but if you do it would be great to crumble into a fresh salad and have it as a delicious, light lunch. If you don’t have honey, you can substitute it for maple syrup if you want. It is slightly sweeter but still divine.


Honey Pistachio Crusted Salmon (Serves 2)

1/4 cup runny honey

1tsp curry powder

1tsp dijon mustard

1/2 cup pistachios, shelled and roughly crushed

2 salmon fillets, boned and skinned

  • Preheat the oven to 190°c/375°f and line a baking sheet with tin foil.
  • Mix together the the runny honey, curry powder and dijon mustard in a small bowl.
  •  Season the salmon fillets and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Drizzle half the sauce over the two fillets then sprinkle the pistachios evenly over both fillets. Pour the rest of the sauce over the top of the two.
  • Bake in the oven for about 15-20mins or until the salmon is completely cooked all the way through.
  • Serve with rice, couscous or mashed potato and lots of lovely veggies!
