How to Make It

Side dish recommendations:
Frozen green beans with butter, salt and pepper, squeeze of lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.


To prepare the salmon, season each filet with salt and pepper (a couple big pinches of each)


Next, in a small bowl mix together the honey, mustard, lemon juice, olive oil and minced garlic. Once combined, stir in the chopped pistachios.


Spread the pistachio mixture evenly over each piece of salmon. Press the pistachio mixture gently into each piece of salmon with the back of a fork.


Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is flaky or cooked through to your desired temperature.


While the salmon is baking, add the olive oil to a small pot over medium heat. Add the shallots, turn to medium low and cook until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper and cook for just a minute until fragrant. Slowly add the cream in and whisk vigorously to combine. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired.


Serve the salmon with a drizzle of the cream sauce and a side of green beans dressed with butter, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon.
