Grilled Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

Back to Blog List Page

Fresh salmon combined with earthy pistachios, tangy stone-ground mustard and sweet honey create a delicious - and deceptively simple – main dish. We love it paired with a simple kale salad for lunch or grilled asparagus and baby potatoes for a beautiful dinner.

    5 min - 10 min
    8 min

  • 4 salmon fillets, skin on
  • ¾ cup pistachios, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. panko bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. stone-ground mustard
  • 2 tbsp. honey


  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Arrange each piece of salmon skin-side down on a piece of foil, turning up the edges to form a ‘nest’ – this will keep juices and toppings from falling through the grate.
  3. Combine lemon juice, mustard and honey, then spread evenly over each piece of salmon.
  4. Combine pistachios, olive oil and panko bread crumbs, then spread evenly over each piece of salmon as well, to form the crust.
  5. Place each packet on grill, and with grill cover closed, cook 6-8 minutes or until fish is opaque.
  6. Carefully remove from grill and serve!
