Author Notes: If you like pistachios, you’re in luck. These green little gems are nutrient-rich—especially with heart-healthy fatty acids. Fatty acids promote HDL (“good” cholesterol) levels, which help prevent plaque buildup and a possible heart attack.

Serves: 4

  • 2 8 oz. salmon fillets, without skin
  • 1 cup pistachos
  • 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a pan with cooking spray.
  2. Lightly season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
  3. Take the unchopped pistachios and place in a food process. Process until they look like bread crumbs. (You can leave a few bigger chunks for aesthetics.)
  4. Mix the spicy mustard and olive oil in a bowl. Then brush the salmon with the spicy mustard. Be sure to put a thick layer on the salmon.
  5. Place the pistachio crumbs onto a plate and then press the salmon flesh-side down into the crumbs. This will give you a nice pistachio coating.
  6. Place the salmon crust-side up in a pan and bake for 20 minutes.
